Methadone and Baby Development

I have a five month old grandson whose mother was on methadone her entire pregancy and months before. The baby is not doing any of the things a 5 month old should do, such as sitting up or trying to, holding or trying to hold his bottle, he can't hold small toys very well, nor does he switch objects from hand to hand, he still bobbles his head and we have to hold his head while carrying him, he doesn't have neck or leg strength, he's not trying to crawl, he is still wearing 3 month size diapers. Is this because of the methadone, will he catch up in his skills and developement?

Does the pediatrician know about the methadone during her pregnancy?
