I have tire to get information on this age and spina bifida. Is there any place to read up on this and does this normally happen at this age?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Spina bifida is something a person is born with but spina bifida occulta (far less serious) can be diagnosed later on.
The March of Dimes has information here about spina bifida occulta - assuming that's what this child has: https://www.marchofdimes.org/complications/spina-bifida.aspx
