Anyone on here know/have noonum syndrome I have googled it know it comes with heart defects and often short stature husband only recently found out he has it but it also comes with learning difficulties something I've suspected he has as very childlike not good with anything really Bill's jobs etc just wondered if anyone else has any issues
My uncle has it. He was diagnosed late in life, my dg had him late in life so put his learning difficulties down to that. But now we know has the characteristics of Noonans
My son has noonans. He has a heart condition and short stature. As with any syndrome, people have different issues within the same diagnosis. My son has dyspraxia, but works at age appropriate levels. Others do have learning difficulties. It can only be diagnosed by a geneticist i believe. The NoonanUK website has lots more information.
Do you mean Noonan syndrome?
I have taught a child with it-the sister and mum both had it as well. He had significant global delay and really struggled to acquire basic literacy/number skills. They all had very short stature and significant heart problems.
Yes I think he needs proper diagnosis from a expert also tbh
