In brief: Referral to Genetics

If you haven't already seen a genetics specialist, i would recommend that as well.
Sometimes geneticists can find the right diagnosis with tests to help pinpoint what caused the anomolies. This would also help guide treatment as well as assisting you with finding the right support group.
