I just found out that my 19 month old has this variation (through a chromosome microarray). There seems to be more information related to 16p11.2 deletion over the duplication. Anyone else's child have this? Can I hear from your experiences? We are slated to see a geneticist in September. Thanks in advance!
The only reason I remembered the exact diagnosis is because I was just working on paperwork for Special Olympics :) Good luck with the geneticist! I hope they help answer many of your questions
I know of one individual with the duplication. He is around 18 now. I know him through Special Olympics so I don't know him too well. He's a great swimming and can do the back stroke now. He has an intellectual delay but he is physically healthy. Speech was harder for him to learn. A little on the short size. He was diagnosed with autism when he was younger but he is very friendly. Loves people. His classmates adore him.
