from what the doctors at the University of Iowa at the Center for Disabilitys told me about my son is that they can potentially grow out of it as they get older and catch up on all the skills they didnt have but my son is still only just 5 years old and yes hes making progress but im not to sure if he will ever completely "grow out of it". So that still remains to be seen?
