Does anyone know when it is possible to tell if a blind child has additional disabilites or if the child is delayed only due to blindness?

And does anyone know if there is a correlation between motor development and cognitive abilities? I.e. If a blind child starts to walk early is the probability that the child has no further disabilites bigger?

My boy has been diagnosed with spastic quad cp, CVI, and chronic lung disease. I just want him to be in the best place he can possibly be for drs, programs, schooling, and where he can be around others with his conditions. Any ideas where to look into. Any place in the world? Want to give him everything possible. Tyia

Past studies have been unsuccessful with a large part being that the genes scientists needed to manipulate could greatly increase the subject's risk of cancer. However, a recent change in the "type" of lab mice being used in a current study at Boston Children's Hospital has shed light on what could be the missing link.
