    Hi @angiejay and welcome to the community. I tried to answer this earlier but my connection broke and my post disappeared.
    Your child has microcephaly? Have the doctors referred to any conditions they think may stem from that microcephaly? Cerebral palsy, anything like that?
    Warmest best wishes,

    Hello JennysDad, in regards to your  question  , no, but  I recently ask  his doctor to refferd r him  to see a neurologist    . But  from my acknowledgement  because he was born very early at 26 weeks  his brain  wasn't fully  developed.
