It is just generally difficult to see her struggle and try so hard and fail a lot.
But then I got to thinking, I feel the same way about my normally developing 5 year old, just in different ways...
However ,doctors will pick up on this immediately in many cases.
Oddly slanted eyes are a symptom as well, in addition to being born with a low birth weight.
In the end, I think I just stumbled around and didn't really answer the question at all.
She doesn't really brush her own teeth, her own hair, bathe herself etc etc etc... In addition, although she participates and helps to brush her teeth and hair and bathing and dressing, I have to also do it after her because she just doesn't have the ability to do it well enough on her own. She can learn to do all of these things but an adult will always have to do it again to make sure that she doesn't have cavities or knots and that she clean enough. Even though they are much less than they have been in the past, fits can consist of biting, kicking, hitting, hair pulling, punching and generally hurting everyone around her.
The major symptom is an annoying high pitched wailing cry that sounds like a cat or a kitten.
This may not be alarming to the parent, since a baby crying usually sounds quite unpleasant.
Babies in less developed countries may have this syndrome without knowing, so there is a small chance more individuals have Cri Du Chat Syndrome.
This syndrome is caused by a missing portion of the chromosome 5.
And for me, having Hailey is enjoyable when it's not difficult!
