I recently read that learning issues tend to pop up when the mutation is after the center of the gene. It the gene is 79 exons long - then the middle would be around 39. Could you parents with sons with duplication mutations give me an idea about if your son has any learning issues, what they are, what you have done to help him and where your particular son's mutation is.
I will start. Will is age 7. Smart boy - but has focus or attention issues, slower responsive speech, very good vocabulary, memorizes things well, spatial skills good, knows alphabet, sounds letters make, knows and learned 120 sight words. sounds words out - sometimes. Has trouble with adjusting to changes - transitions - gets locked into something and does not want to stop. Duplication 54-57. Dr. has prescribed low dosage of SSRI to help with inflexibility, melt downs...Anyone heard of that? Char Burke
