 I don't know anything about this issue, but I'm wondering if one or more of the moms on the Raising Kids with Special Needs group can help with any questions you/she might have.

Have her get a prescription for physical/occupational therapy fo him and a speech therapist.  I believe he can recieve free services until 3 years.  I would contact their county family services.
