Will every triplet or twin in identical births have the same developmental disability?

In brief: Probably not

Developmental delay/disabilities have many causes, most of which are not genetic.
If you are known to carry a genetic disease associated with developmental disability, testing can usually be performed on each fetus individually while still in the uterus. If you are thought to have identical (monozygotic) twins or triplets, then they would all share identical genes.
