delayed development


I have a 2 year old little boy who has NDI. He has been recently assessed at our local Children's development Centre in Hereford (England) and we have been told that he is a year behind and that he will have a permanent learning disability. On the other hand, his nephrologist at Birmingham Children's Hospital has told us that patients with NDI usually catch up between 5 and 8 years old.
We are very concerned and would like to know whether other parents/ carers have found that children affected by NDI are usually behind??
