A disorder that has signs similar to GAMT
I've heard from a lot of mothers & fathers that have undiagnosed children with signs similar to John & GAMT. I've only heard back from one mother so far that got an answer for her child. Her daughter has another rare disorder called Phelan-McDermid Syndrom. I wanted to post this information in case there are parents with undiagnosed children that are reading my site because their child is undiagnosed. This is a disorder that can also look similar to GAMT, so it might be something you want to check into. Also, the mother shared with me that before they got the Phelan-McDermid Syndrom, the doctors told her that she had Angelman's Syndrome. However, when the tests showed up that she had Phelan-McDermid Syndrom, they went back and found that human error had occured with the original Angelman's test and she did not have Angelmans. Just want to bring awareness to these two other syndroms in hopes that it helps someone.
