My 3 year old son who has been globally developmentally delayed has been diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder. I was told no other children have the same duplication as he does. I was given really bad news because of the chromosome that is duplicated. His chromosome 2 is duplicated on the short arm at 22.3. Otherwise shown on his test as 2P22.3. I was wondering if anyone out there has a child with this duplication or one close to his duplication so I could find out more about his future. He has just started trying to talk at 3 and a half but originally his doctor told me he would probably never talk and would be intellectially disabled. Would love to hear feedback. Thanks.
