I am certainly not an expert in this area, but I am a physical therapist and generally consider a significant weakness that is present on one side of the body but not the other, an abnormality. If her arm and hand is in fact obviously weaker than the other I would definitely inform her pediatrician and go from there. Hope that helps.
