my son is almost 5 months old with  FTT, developmental delays, and hypertonia do you think there could be one underlying problem that isnt being caught that all these things are actually symptoms of? anyone gone thru something similar and have an actual diagnosis? his eval from his therapist says decreased flexability in hamstrings (he cant bring his feet to his mouth) he has a head tilt and left rotation preference, left curved spine. flexing and extending of legs noted but minimal, decreased activation in pulling to sitting, unable to prop sit, unable to roll, he is deficit in coordination, balance, reaction time, stregnth, endurance, and range of motion/flexability does this sounds like CP? i have heard from many people it does

Have you thought of talking to a geneticist or developmental pediatrician? The geneticist could can do genetic testing to see if it is a particular disability.
