DiGeorge Syndrome

DiGeorge Syndrome is a chromosomal deletion syndrome and can vary significantly between individuals depending upon what and how body systems are affected. OTs work with a child with DiGeorge syndrome much as they do with any other child, learning about parents’ concerns, gaining knowledge of the child’s current skill level, medical considerations, and using meaningful occupations to gain strength in weak areas.
