Brief Answer: Speech and Audiology, Club foot, Incontinence Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for your query. 1. Your child needs an speech and audiology evaluation. In ability to hear speech frequencies leads to an inability to speak. 2. I believe that the the foot turned inwards refers to a Club foot which can be corrected by treatment or surgery. 3. The Incontinence may require further investigations. Delayed milestones may be noted during the evaluation. 4. All these symptoms may be related under a congenital syndrome. With a full examination and testing, this may help plan his rehabilitation. I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them. Regards.
