Hello Sir/Maam A proper therapy programme can only be determined based on the extent of microcephaly present which would need a thorough purview of the child's reports, scans and a paediatric diagnosis. Based on the reports and a thorough assessment, it can then be decided if the child would best benefit from physical therapy, speech therapy or visual therapy. In my professional opinion, speech therapy can still wait a few more months. You must primarily begin with a specialist paediatric physiotherapist who would be able to able to best guide the child. Paediatric Physiotherapists trained in NDT (Neurodevelopmental Techniques) would be the best. I would be able to refer you to a few of my colleagues who are specialized in Paediatric Physio if required. Hope that answers your question.
