Hi, I'm new to this forum. My son is almost 10 months old and was oxygen deprived at birth. He is evolving CP and is developmentally delayed -he doesn't roll yet, and has problems with sitting and using his hands. He also has microcephaly (head circumference < 0.4th centile). I'm particularly worried about the microcephaly and what it might mean for his future mental acuity. He's a lovely boy, very smiley and babbles a lot. He mostly seems pretty engaged with us but has blank spells, and isn't especially interested in toys unless they have lights and sound. Does anyone have any experience of microcephaly that can tell me a little of what to expect? Is there anything that can be done for it?
