My niece is about 9 months and has been developing more slowly than other babies, but we always attributed it to her being premature by about a month and a half. Well, my sister in law says she took my niece to the doctor and that she has a genetic disorder, but said they didn't know anything else. I'm trying to be helpful, and not ask a lot of questions because I know this is hard for them, but I'm so worried about her. I tried finding info on line but there was so much information and it was hard for me to understand.
I guess I was just wondering how they know my niece has a genetic disorder if they don't know what kind of genetic disorder it is. Could this just be really minor? Or is it usually more serious since they knew it was some kind of genetic disorder, but didn't know what kind it was.
