Thank you for posting your query.

There semms to be mild developmental delay, as per your description.

MRI findings are non-specific and can occur in children with develpmental delay, hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain) and infections.

No specific treatment is necessary for the MRI abnormalities.

You should show the child to a pediatric neurologist to look for any treatable cause of developmental delay.

Physiotherapy would also be useful.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
