Hi Dear
Welcome to the HCM,
Till the age of brain size growth occurs.
Microcephally does not allow to grow the brain to its maximum,plus these babies also do have some problem either metabloic or birth injury ete all lead to less development of brain. Result in to mental retardation.
Neurosurgeon to be consulted for release of sutures so that at least brain gets space to develop for remaining two years.
Physiotherapist and other rehabilitative specialist to be consulted for the further relief.
Hope the query is answered.
Thanks
