This is Evan. He is 18, with a birthday coming July 24. Evan was diagnosed with the GNAO1 mutation just 2 months ago after having been part of a genome study for 3 years. We have always believed he was Autistic because his symptoms are similar….aggressive and unpredictable behaviors, seizures, non-verbal, low tone, right side weakness, pervasive developmental delays, poor fine motor control, intellectual disability). We are hopeful that this new diagnosis will send us on a path of discovery and new opportunities.
