The developmental pedi said DS1 did not show any signs of Fragile X but she would still run the test. I am wanting to make this tests count since it is out of pocket. DS1 has Palmers creases, epicanthal folds, stenotic ear canals, significant speech issues, slight hypotonia, he wears orthotics. I also did no testing during my pg with him at all, I would like to rule out mosiac downs which I hear is not tested for on a microarray. His dx of ASD is soft because he has tons of symptoms except in the social area where we are struggling going to find two. He is a very happy, social ( with adults anyway), always smiling child who just happens to line up cars, pace in circles for hours, along with our things. Should I be pushing for a g branded karyotype instead of fragile x? Genetic testing is out of my knowledge base and all the help I am getting is various calls from the Developmental Clinic staff, none of which is the doc but rather it seems every other person that has no idea what I m talking about.
