What is NAA15-related syndrome?
NAA15-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the NAA15 gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should.
The NAA15 gene plays a key role in development. It makes chemical changes to molecules in cells known as proteins. These changes are important for cells to function properly.
Because the NAA15 gene is important in the development, many people who have NAA15-related syndrome have:
- Motor delays
- Developmental delay
- Intellectual disability
- Speech impairment
- Behavior issues, including autism
Do people who have NAA15-related syndrome look different?
People who have NAA15-related syndrome do not look very different.
Many people have speech delay.
Many people have behavior issues, including autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also called ADHD.
Intellectual disability is common among people who have NAA15-related syndrome.
SITTING AND WALKING
Almost everyone who has NAA15-related syndrome has motor delay.
