Dr. Marlene Wust-smith answered

Smooth gyra/dvlpment: How severe is his lissencephaly? Any difficulty swallowing/coordinating breathing? Any seizures? If his brain is not severely affected and he is making developmental progress with PT/OT/Speech I would intensify his services so that he is getting therapy of some sort every waking moment. Realistically what this means is that ALL caretakers work with him in ways that reinforce existing therapy.
