A friend of ours is planning to adopt a baby who is miroencephalic. Her head is
in the bottom 5th percentile in terms of size. SHe is 2 1/2 years old and is
devlopmentally appropriate for her age. she has a good vocabulary and good
skills. what could the future hold for her. could she continue to develop
normally? could problems be expected?

no cause has been found. her mother was a substance abuser. she is small as a
whole as well she is in the bottome 35th percentile as a whole size wise.

an nmri taken at a very early age showed normal.
