I am a therapist working with a 4-year-old girl in Philadelphia, PA, USA, who has this deletion -- 10 q 21 of 12 Mb, or 10 q 21.1q 22.1.
Her moderate hearing loss and moderate vision loss are being addressed now, and her Physical Therapy and I think Occupational Therapy is happening. She had been viewed as having autistic characteristics, but she has been making such great progress -- attending preschool, having a structured predictable setting, and hearing and seeing better with her hearing aids and glasses -- that I question the view that she is on the (autism) spectrum, but time may tell.
If you have any experience with this deletion, please write on this discussion forum. I would be very interested in learning from you.
If you have *any experience with any chromosomal deletion* and can offer a family some printed or spoken resources *in MANDARIN*, that would be very much appreciated. Thank you!!!
