Construction of the theoretical framework of care guide for people with 22q 11.2 deletion syndrome
Although some children with 22q11.2DS will require ongoing medical support or may be waiting for further surgeries, in many cases 22q11.2DS patients will have overcome their life-threatening conditions by the time they begin school. Nonetheless, at school age, these children still face developmental and cognitive difficulties that can impact learning. 22q11.2DS can impair gross motor skills (e.g. sitting, walking, moving), fine motor skills (e.g. handwriting) and lead to delayed speech, language and communication.
