Radiologist 's  Response
with findings seen on CT scan there appears to some form of developmental lag in development of right right cerebral hemisphere ( right sided brain)
there could be some damage to brain due to difficult child birth- causing damage- which will be fixed( non progressive by now) with some loss of abilities
other possibility is some syndrome congenital causing this- possibility it being progressive increases

U need to get MRI for further characterization of pattern

also child needs to be assessed by doctor for his/ her abilities and any other abnormal features/ conditions in body.
