My 7 year old son , Harrison, was diagnosed with a chromosome deletion on 16 q 12.2.
He was tested due to concerns at school with learning and a delay in thriving.
The resulting diagnosis helps little as dr cannot confirm or deny that this is the cause of v. poor memory , attention, poor enamel and grinding, faecial impaction, bedwetting and unbalanced movements.
He has low set ears, narrow face - to quite a pointed chin, slim chest with wide set nipples.
Would really like to speak to a parent who has similar deletion in their child and how that may have impacted on their learning,
Thanks - Carla
