Do you have any other family members with learning disabilities?

Not my family as far as I know, but dh brother's kids all have problems except there daughter. I don't know of a family with more problems then them. We were kind of worried even when were pregnant with ds that his family might have some kind of male linked problem gene. Dh brother has some kind of LD and is colour blind, his eldest son is border line autistic, his second son has emotional troubles and dyslexia, his third son has ADHD and dyslexia, his youngest has Down syndrome and autism. I don't know how they cope.

Nope. My sister's learning disabilities stem from a traumatic birth....cord wrapped around her neck, trouble breathing, lack of oxygen, siezures...etc, etc. It was soooo scary.

That does sound scary. I sometimes think Brandon's problems are related to his birth. He was born premature after my placenta abrupted. He went into distress during labor and was born via emergency csection. I have asked my doctors about this and they all act like his problems are not related to his birth but I still wonder.

My family has quite a few members with learning disabilities. I have five brothers and I think they all had learning disabilities. One of my brothers has PDD which is what Brandon has.
