MY DD 17 months has had mri/eeg/ultrasound due to absence episodes and delayed milestone reaching.

had bloods taken and shows high calcium level. so checking vitamin d intake.

does anyone know if this is all interlinked?
is there a condition with all these symptoms?

Don't know a lot about it but rang bells with the high calcium and developmental delay. People with Williams Syndrome are ratherly rudely described as having ' a cocktail-party manner' but I am not sure how that demonstrates itself in chidlhood . As you say she is young.
There are other associated abnormalities so a whole body exam and a number of tests plus genetic testing would be needed.
High calcium levels do not have very many genetic or congenital causes. I would think Williams syndrome would be high ont he differential list.
