My daughter has a different deletion but you may want to contact the charity Unique which I believe supports families who have children with chromosome issues.

Do you get disability living allowance for your child? I do and it's a massive help. I also have an education health and care plan for her at school.

I realise I haven't actually answered your question! My daughter is five and to be honest, I'm also struggling to support her when she's angry at herself so could also do with some advice.

Regarding education, do apply for an EHCP assessment. If you have any problems getting her one, the charity IPSEA are fantastic at supporting parents through the process.
