Hello, My son has just been diagnosed with a chromosone disorder more specfically 15Q11.2 microdeletion. He does not have Angelman Syndrom or Prader Willi. He is 7 struggles in school with behavior and is developmentally delayed. He has alot of autistic tendencies but is not on the spectrum. His behavior issues are caused by the chromosome deletion. I have scoured the internet but I can not find anything helpful regarding his diagnosis. Are there any moms in this community that have a child with 15Q11.2 microdeletion? Thank You

My son was diagnosed with this, then diagnosed with P.A.N.D.A.S/P.A.N.S. Then was treated with antibiotics & IVIG treatments and the results were significant in improvement. I recommend parents research this website called www.strepmonster.com to get more facts if possibly their child exhibits similar behaviors.

My son has the same deletion. It is in between brake points 1 & 2. He has a dx of autism, sensory issues, low iq, learning disabilities and more. Look up Einstine university, they are doing a research study on this spasific deletion. They are amazing!! I've gotten my son signed up and it just helps getting more info on how to help him not only in school but day to day life! You can send me an email or pm and I can give you more info.

Hi my grand daughter was diagnosed with chromosome 15q11.2 deletion when she was only three months old. She has been removed from her mother due to unexplainable broken bones which I know were not caused by her mother and father but the government called it abuse, She had not one bruise was under our local doctor for six weeks as she wasn't feeding properly and that very day our doctor had weighed and measured her and she did not let out a sound only a smile yet when my daughter took her to the hospital they said she had been abused and kept fighting us until she was taken away with no proof, has anyone out there had a child with this deletion that would fracture bones easily and shows no sign of being in pain. I am desperate even though my grand daughter has been returned to her auntie and uncle now I am desperate to find answers and clear her parents names from this government dept accusing them of child abuse. There is already two other daughters by a different father that were 9 and 7at the time of all this that were not removed and have stayed with their mum. Thank you to anyone who can help

Hi, I'm so glad to have found you. My granddaughter was diagnosed just after Christmas. She is 6 years old. She is keeping up with school work and hasn't presented with any behavioral problems at school, it's when she gets home she is just exhausted in a stressed out sort of way. Then the temper tantrums set in if she is asked to do anything. She just seems like it's all she can do to keep up with the other kids. She does have speech problems those are getting better with therapy and school. She had such a rocky start. She was in child protective services for a short while I finnally got to bring her home after 16 months of parent visitation during which time I had her. She is a very social, fun, and loving little girl. We have a follow up visit with her geneticist on Thursday. I just want to help her any way I can. Thank you

Had prior diagnosis of aspergers age 5 but knew couldn'"t be right because of global intellectual disabilitues.

SIGH !he called me last night to tell me he"s leaving!! She also has incontinence, scoliosis, leg length discrepency,vision problems, asthma,anemia and slight hearing problems.Having said that she is generally a happy, loving,co-operative little girl(sorry,young adult)who is the joy of our later years.She is our grandaughter whom we'"ve raised since birth. Have recently taken her out of school didn"t cope with high school even though in support class. To large and overwhelming. Will be home schooled Hope this helps.Thanks for forum.

Hi Kim,

I also just joined so I could message you! I also just joined the Facebook group! I am so excited to know that there are other parents out there! My daughter's deletion is also in BP1 and BP2. She doesn't have Angelman or Prader Willi. She is 6 1/2. She has the same struggles as your son. She has autistic characteristics. (She does have a diagnosis from when she was younger b/c it looked like classic autism) She has anxiety, mood swings, severe behavior issues, ADHD, speech delay, fine motor delay, ODD among other things! She does well in the hospital setting due to the extreme structured environment. (Due to her severe aggression towards her sister she has been admitted 5 times) I look forward to talking and chatting with you on here or on the Facebook group!!!!

Talk to you soon!
Amanda
