Koolen de Vries Syndrome – 17q21.31 Microdeletion Syndrome Support Group

This Facebook group is for the immediate families of individuals who have the diagnosis of Koolen-de Vries Syndrome (KDVS) previously known as 17q21.31 Microdeletion Syndrome.
Our PURPOSE is to offer encouragement by sharing our daily hopes and dreams, our challenges, our joys and sorrows as we raise our special children.

To maintain Safety, Privacy and our Personal Nature, we are limiting this group to immediate family members ONLY. This is a positive support group. We recognize that children and families are individuals, with diffferent parenting styles. Any comparisons we make among our children’s challenges, physical features, and behaviors are simply a natural way of sharing and these help us understand our own children.
