My son was born at 25 weeks, 1lb 13 oz. , 93 days in NICU. He had no brain bleeds and had normal EEG showing normal brain activity before dismissed from hospital. He has been very behind ever since. He crawled at 17 mos. Walked at 20 months. He does not speak, barely babbles today. He is intelligent and does sign language. He was diagnosed in Aug 08' from an MRI with Cerrebellar Hypolplasia. This means his cerrebellum which is responsible for gross motor skills among other things is permemantly underdeveloped. He has many signs of Autism, but is not Autisic. He is not social, shows little interest in humans, other than parents. We even get ignored and avoided often. My main question is does anyone have a preemie with any of these traits? There are not many 25 wk babies out there that come out as healthy as my son, so we don't have a lot to compare to. Any input from other mothers would be so appreciated.
