Hi starlights,

I think what they mean is your daughter has hypotonia. Generalised Hypotonia is the type of hypotonia your daughter has. Hypotonia can be generalised or focal which is in one area.

Hospital's are hopeless when it comes to explaining things in layman terms.
Its all medical jargon.
Always take a list of any questions for any appointment and dont be afraid to write things down as the doctor tells you things,many people do.
