Anthony Jr's Symptoms

To give you a better understanding of Anthony's challenges, I'm going to just list the majority of his symtoms:

Microcephaly (a head circumference greater than 3 standard deviations below the norm, Anthony's is -4 but still growing!!)

Vision Issues (low vision, strabismis, nystagmis)

High Muscle Tone "Hypertonia"

GI/Feeding Issues (Reflux, moves tongue primarily front to back, difficulty swallowing foods other than purees...but learning more everyday!!)

Global Devlopmental Delays (delays in all areas of development)
