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?
my neurologist just diagnosed my son with global developmental delay today as well,my son just turned 2 years old,my son still does not play with any toys and thinks everything is a rattle also,and he loves strings/shoelaces.im wondering the same question will my son ever catch up,he looks so normal.i just hope my son proves these doctors wrong.
