In brief: Multiple causes

Probably the most common group is due to genetics & these kids grow up fine with normal development & intellectual functioning.
The alternatives are many and have variable outcomes: pre-natal injury (toxins, trauma, infection, low oxygen); brain malformations;metabolic disorders ; syndromes :degenerative disorders. These groups have specific findings on evaluation but may not be detected until older.
