Global developmental delay

My dayghter is 14 month old. She has global developmental delay. Her neck control, rolling over and sitting were all delayed. She is still not standing and has not attained pincer grasp. She does not know how to use the toys and thinks all the toys as rattle. She is on physiotherapy and infant stimulation programme. She makes  good eye contact. All her medical tests are normal and she does not have any dysmorphic features. What is the natural history and how will she do in long term? Will she develop mental retardation or will she catch up?
