    hi Janrose,

    I'm not an expert in Kbg syndrome but I have read the following:

    - it is quite rare syndrome, it has been reported in apprx 46 people to date
    - it is usually not associated with severe medical complications
    - follow-up should include an EEG, complete orthodontic evaluation, skeletal investigation (with particular regard to spine curvatures and limb asymmetry), hearing testing and ophthalmologic assessment
    - if developmental and language delay is also noted, you might need to consider early intervention and speech therapy

    As always, every person is different and unique but feel free to make any questions and share your experiences in the forum!

    All the best
    Gina
