The participant’s parents first became concerned with his development when he was 6 months old and not yet rolling. He eventually did roll over at 8 months and was walking at 26 months. He began babbling at 14 months, but is currently nonverbal.
At 11 months, he started having seizures. He has tried various seizure medications, but they have not been able to control his seizures completely.
Around age 2 he started having right hand tremors and arm weakness, and his coordination began to regress. He lost the ability to feed himself with utensils, walk, and maintain head control. He started to drool and act lethargic, but it is unclear if this is due his underlying condition or the higher dose of seizure medication.
When he was 3 years old, he had a rash and was treated with steroids. While on steroids, he regained some of his lost motor skills. He is currently on steroids and having great improvement with motor skills. Every time he is weaned off of steroids, his functioning regresses.
