A. With kittens this young with neurological disorders it is speculated that they may have a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia (panleukopenia). This condition occurs because of a viral infection during the pregnancy if the mom and this will cause certain alterations in the brain development of the kitten which will have long lasting ataxia effects. If this is seen as the cause by a complete physical exam by your veterinarian.
