Hi, My son Kaleb (12) was born with C-ACC … he had a hard time of it in the beginning but grew to be a happy boy… but here lately he has become violent towards himself and has been placed on meds… I know this type of behavior sometimes comes with the condition but any help in curbing his “tantrums” would be helpful… Thanks

Hi,
My name is Christie and I am a stay-at-home mom of two. One daughter, Drew, almost 9, and Jonah, will be three in just two weeks. Jonah was diagnosed with ACC at 6 weeks old. We brought him into Children’s emergency room because he had a hard lump in the middle of his head. A CAT scan showed that to be craniosynostosis which was repaired a couple of months later. The CAT also showed the ACC. A MRI the next day confirmed it. I went through all of stages I’m sure everyone else here has gone through. I lived online looking for any drop of info on the diagnosis. It is so incredibly hard to label a certain “type” of person with this. In the meantime, Jonah was hitting his milestones normally, even walking two weeks ahead of his big sis. When Hurricane Katrina hit, of course, we had to leave our home and that was, in a way, a blessing for me because I was able to break from the internet and just enjoy Jonah. (Our house was unaffected thank goodness) Jonah is in a mothers day out program 3 days a week and absolutely the most verbal and happy child in the class. We are so proud of him. I am looking forward to reconnecting with everyone. Sincerely, Christie Dannewitz

I am mom to Jesse (8 year old son) who was diagnosed with P-ACC at the age of 3. I am interested in learning more about ACC and P-ACC, helping to find support in various ways, connecting with children and adults who have ACC or P-ACC so that we can all better understand this condition and encourage each other.

My son, Rafi has cc dysgenesis and multiple other anomalies. He’s a bright, stubborn, partly uncoordinated 9 yr old who wasn’t supposed to survive and is still proving the docs wrong. We just went to homeschooling this year after trying both public and charter schools. I am a former member of the acc list which I found to be vindictive and an unfriendly place. I’ll give this one a shot. Hi to any oldtimers who might remember me from the 2000 and thereabouts family oriented gatherings.

Oh yes, and since I left acc list I have been labeled an Aspie…leaving open questions about the status of my CC and answering many…

My son Rafi was born with multiple anomalies in 1997. Incidentally, they found he didn’t seem to have a CC…later the diag was switched to partial cc-thin, with ONH, which of course only impacts his vision enough to be a small problem but not to qualify him for any help. I have 4 older kids too, who are all now young adults and the entire family apppears to be on the autism spectrum somewhere…so I have little patience with the eliminate autism now nonsense that is all over the Net…don’t even start with that please.

Rafi has beaten the odds so far. He is verbal, active, happy and stubborn. Biggest challenge seems to be fine motor (writing especially, though he is learning to keyboard) and sensory, including the toilet thing (any of you have kids who LIKE the feel of poop on their bottom?). He reads at grade level at least, is very bright and a good problem solver, and biggest academic problems seem to be in math. At this time I have begun homeschooling and his last school did not work and play well with mommies so I am still finding out what he actually knows.

We have just gone through eardrum reconstruction this spring, and are waiting to see if hearing has been regained.

I am an officially single parent with limited financial resources but muck along the best I can. CHck out what i do when not focusing on Rafi at www.janesprints.com.
