note: Not all children present with the same symptoms. The severity varies according to the size of the duplication, if there is another chromosomal issue (such as CMT- Charcot-Marie-Tooth) and the children make wonderful developmental changes with maturity in age, and surroundings.
NOTE: Many of these children are extremely routine oriented and organized. They function better when they have daily activity predictability and are allowed to direct their focus ("Stim") on something they enjoy (like lining up toy cars or shoes,) so they are not overstimulated, similar to obsessive-compulsive behavior. This diminishes and is easier to alter as they reach adolescence and adulthood.
These beautiful children may have speech delays, but they are excellent observers. They may not pay attention to what is said, but they understand what you are asking of them. They may not play with other children, but they will play next to them and watch the interaction. Love them and let them shine in their own way!
