I spoke to a dr in the UK about Nathans gene duplication. She is a genetic researcher studing 8th chromosome abnormalities and has all of Nates medical records. She skyped me to talk about his development and expectations and she told me to watch him closely for seizures. She had me add it as a concern on his iep even. This freaks me out! I'm starting to research seizures now, any good information sources you'd recommend? I guess 65% of kids with 8th chromosome issues end up with them by puberty, she didn't know for sure if he would because there are no other cases of anyone with the same duplication. Aaaaagh!
