welcome to hcm forum
The Acrocallosal syndrome is a multiple congenital anomalies with mental retardation. It is a
autosomal recessive inheritance , thus there is a 25% chance of the next child being effected.Genetic counseling is of prime importance and antenatal diagnosis can be attempted by mutation analysis and antenatal ultrasound.

i would advised you meet paediatrician , neurologist and orthopaedics for furthur management

wish you good health
