Many causes, and: if your child is currently under the care of a neurologist, appropriate testing may include both imaging studies as well as blood tests for intrauterine infection, karyotyping and other DNA tests.

Meanwhile, keep playing with and talking with the child, do all checkups & vaccines, and just hope for the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
