It is important to have HIGH EXPECTATIONS for learning for children who have 22q Deletion Velocardiofacial syndrome.
Individuals with 22q deletion syndrome may have significant visuospatial dysfunction, diminished math attainment, and executive dysfunction.
Math learning difficulties in 22q deletion include difficulties in understanding and representing quantities and in accessing the numerical meaning from symbolic digits.
Motor and sensory abilities in children with 22q deletion syndrome may be delayed.
Speech and language development is delayed in the majority of children with 22q deletion syndrome. This may be due in part to structural differences such as a cleft palate (a hole in the roof of the mouth) or to functional difficulties (either VPI or oral apraxia).
