Hi there - I'm new to this forum. We just found out that our 2 year old son has a small deletion on chromosome 8. He's developmentally delayed but progressing along the normal curve - just later. He received services through EI since he was 18 months old. I don't know all the specifics or where the deletion is but would appreciate any advice. My husband and I are having testing done on Friday to see if we have the same deletion to help determine if this deletion is significant or not. I'm lost & overwhelmed... thanks in advance.
Hi, have you checked out this site?
They have info on all the different issues with each chromosome. Here are the search results for 8:
My daughter has a small deletion on 9. She is 3 and doing awesome. She is delayed but not more than 9-12 months behind, and she had a lot of complications with her birth that caused her first year to be a write off developmentally. We heard a lot of scary info from genetics when she was born- but she is writing her own story. Definitely not following their prognosis. :)
