We expect babies and children to be able to do certain things by certain ages. We know not every child is the same, and also have to take into account things like prematurity. For instance, most babies are pulling up on furniture and attempting to take a first step around their first birthday. If they get to 15-16 months and aren't doing it, we say that's a delayed ...Read more

Could a facial injury in 2 y.O be the only reason for speech delay? His CT showed no damage. Has had genetic testing. Only delay is expressive language. Receptive is age-appropriate.
Mychild has mild hypotonia in legs only, he is 10 months old, normal MRI and spectroscopy, delayed motor skills only, what could be the problem?
Many things: If his other milestones are normal then this narrows it down a bit. We want to know details of his birth history, early life, nutrition factors, overall growth, and family history to just name a few things in order to figure this out. Is the motor skill delay progressive? (is his muscle strength WORSENING?) Or is it static? Could be many reasons at this point, these answers will guide diagnosis ...Read more
How to differentiate between upper motor neuron disorder and lower motor neuron disorder in a 10 months old, if MRI isn't possible?
EMG: If a MRI is impossible then an EMG can demonstrate lower motor neuron dysfunction- (i.e. any abnormality involving the anterior horn cell, dorsal and ventral ganglia, peripheral nerve root, and/or muscle. In a 10 month old sedation may be required and will not effect the outcome of the test other than the patients cooperation and comfort. Take care and well wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the recovery time for a 10 YO with a distal femur benign tug lesion/cortical desmoid? Are activities like volleyball that don't cause pain ok?
Brief recovery time: This is a benign and self limited lesion that requires no more than rest and pain relief with ibuprofen if needed. It is not serious and usually occurs in the presence of athletic activity. Sometimes it is found as an unrelated and insignificant finding on MRI done for other reasons. A few weeks at most of rest and use of ibuprofen if painful and activities that do not cause pain are ok ...Read more
My daughter needs help with fine motor skills. Is this a sign or symptom of a learning disability?
Not necessarily: Delay of fine motor skills in and of itself does not necessarily correlate to cognitive delay. It may be neuromuscular in nature or a developmental delay that simply requires some therapy. Important information would include delay in other milestones. Please speak with your pediatrician for further evaluation and guidance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is palilalia more often related to tourette's or autism spectrum? My child has asd and multiple motor tics started palilalia 6+ months ago.
Statistics unavailab: Palilalia can occur in both. Reports would implicate tourette's as most common, but it has been reported in autism and asperger's. Formal comparative incidence studies appear to be unavailable at this time. Perhaps one of my colleagues in research will comment further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 7 month old has focal seizures, axial hypotonia and developmental delays. What could this be? Our neuro isn't sure.
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. If hypotonia is fairly acute onset and associated with lethargy and constipation, consider botulism. Sometimes cause is not found, but early intervention may be helpful. ...Read more
What r causes of isolated expresive speech delay in 2 yo could it be trauma when nose broke? Brain CT normal. history of bad glue ear and t&a removal
A mix of genetic &: environmental factors cause Expressive Language Disorder. The same number of ear infections occur in Preschoolers with & without ELD. When hearing returns to normal after Conductive Hearing Loss, linguistic impairments from CHL also stop. Multiple genes have been found for ELD in family linkage studies. Other perinatal risk factors contribute, like prematurity. A nasal fracture doesn't cause it. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Increased confusion, problems with speech and word finding, is it normal 7 months after a mild tbi?
No: In a young person, after a mild tbi, improvement is the usual course during the 1st 6 months. Consult your physician to evaluate for sources that are impeding your progress. Additional imaging studies (ct or mri) may reveal some potential delayed sequelae of tbi such as post-traumatic/normal pressure hydrocephalus or subdural fluid collections. These are rare with mild tbi but not unknown. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6q deletion, developmental delay and small head. Mri was normal. Does this indicate that brain development is not affected?

Its eventual effect on function will be variable.The only data you have from an MRI in this case is that the parts are there in the proper size and relationship with one another.It could have revealed a deformation in structure, but did not.The presence of developmental delay is your best indicator to expect problems later. ...Read more

20 month old has verba, social, and communication delays. Could this be signs of autism and how to differentiate ASD from aa development delay ?
Social interaction : A few things. One it's important to have a hearing test to rule out hearing impairment. A hallmark of ASD is abnormal social functioning such as preferring not to be held or cuddled. Limited eye contact or interest in conversation. ASD often also presents with delays. Delays alone, however, are less likely to have social dysfunction and are usually more specific. I hope this helps. ...Read more
Is hand flapping/kicking legs and hitting out when over-excited normal for an adult without autistic spectrum disorder?
NO: Obviously this is not "normal" behavior for any adult. There may be other psychiatric issues causing this but autistic spectrum disorder seems the most likely cause by far. Kids on the autistic spectrum tend to turn into adults on the spectrum, though often symptoms can become less severe over time, especially with proper treatment, which can include dietary changes, supplements and homeopathy. ...Read more
