first started showing behavior changes around age 4 and was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD by age 5.  At age 8 her speech became slurred and over the years it has become more difficult to understand her.  Last year in 2014 her clumsiness and balance issues became a major concern.  Her psychiatrist sent her for a neuropsych eval where she was referred to genetics and then neurology.  On August 13, 2015, I received Aliyah’s results that she tested positive for JHD.  My worst nightmare had become true. She is now being referred to 6-7 other specialists. 
Aliyah just started 6grade at her new middle school and seems to be loving it.  She has been making new friends. Aliyah is still able to walk and talk, and I am hoping to help her keep her strength up so she can remain strong to fight as hard as she can.  Her arms and legs seem to be a little stiff, she has the itchy face and mouth movements.  She currently sees occupational therapy once a week and soon will be receiving physical therapy services as well to work on her balance.  Speech therapy should be starting soon too. School has been accommodating by teaching her how to use the assisted technology devices for when the time comes that she will need them.

You can email her mom to donate to her bucket list!! jnerat17@gmail.com
