My sister's son has Jacob's syndrome, he is nine years old. He was diagnosed when he started school because it was taking him longer than his peers to learn and he had some behavioral issues. He now goes to a special school where he is given more attention and he has caught up with kids his age. He's probably going to return to public school next year.
Kids with Jacob's syndrome are just as bright as anyone else. They just need a little extra attention and care. I completely agree with the article, that if they are given the right support, they will not have any problems in life.
