In brief: Unrelated
Assuming that the cortical defect in vision is an isolated phenomenon, other aspects of development should proceed at the normal pace.
While some cortical vision impairments are isolated, many are associated with more generalized defects. For you to know about this, this child must have been old enough to analyze the cortical defect and therefore is being diagnosed in other areas.
