After almost 3 1/2 years we still have no diagnoses. Doctor's in Florida cannot figure this out. Please help us find the reason.

Mason is a 3 1/2 year old boy that has what is called "Global Developmental Delay". Mason would love to do what every other 3 1/2 year old healthy child does; walk, talk, ride a bike, climb the ladder and slide down the slide. Mason loves the pool, but can only sit in his float while mommy stays close by to make sure he does not tip over and swollow the entire pool. Mason goes to a special school and at 3 1/2 he is still in the room with infants because he cannot stand on his own or feed himself. Mason only eats pureed food because he will choke on solid food as he is unable to chew solid food due to low oral muscle control. He still drinks a bottle because he just does not have the strength to suck on a straw.
We are asking for help to raise funds so Mason can have an Exxon and Gene Noble Test. Hoping that this test will find the reason why Mason has such low muscle tone.
After doing much research, we have found a hospital that specializes in Developemental Delay at North Shore University Hospital, Long Island, New York. They have contacted me to asure me that they will see Mason in late February and do a complete 2 day evaluation to determine a diagnoses.
It is said it takes a village to raise a child, I am asking for all of you to become part of Mason's village and help him reach his greatest accomplishments.
