I was just reading an article out of Canada that there is a high percentage of kids that are identified as having delays before entering school, and this could be remedied with some quick screening tests:

I suspected something was wrong when Lilly was a couple of weeks old. She had temporal lobe seizures, which are very obscure and easy to miss. I brought it up at her first doctor visit and it was dismissed (the doctor thought it was a "pseudo-seizure" as a result of GERD).

That's sad that your doctor blew you off when you first brought it up, and can be so frustrating.
