    Support the Dup 15q International Meeting

    My son has Dup15q. It is a genetic disorder that affects development and is the most common found in children with autisim. So far, Nicholas isn't showing any severe effects from this but it is still frustrating for him because he has trouble eating some foods and he has a real hard time with speaking.

    My mom is working with some other people at www.dup15q.org to raise funds through the Pepsi Refresh Project in order to fund a conference so parents can learn more about this disorder and what is being done as far as treatment research.

    The link to where to vote is on the dup15 page. Thank you for your votes!

    Voted! I think that because I voted for this project, the site will make it easier for me to find and vote for it again. That's how it has worked with some other projects.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    (standing on chair shouting) Please remember to click for dup15q Every Day!

    If you can't find it on the Pepsi Refresh page just type in dup15q in the search oval on the top right-hand side.

    Why am I posting about this again? My second youngest niece is going to college for special education, secondary ed. for autism spectrum students. I'm learning more and more about it as she gets into it further.
