2. Neurological and Developmental Symptoms

Girls with triple X syndrome do not normally have any intellectual deficits, though they may experience some neurological and developmental delays. Infants and young children may have difficulty meeting developmental milestones for speech and motor skills. Older girls may continue to have trouble with language, including difficulties with reading comprehension or dyslexia. Most of these deficits are correctable with speech, occupational, or physical therapy. The earlier these interventions begin, the better the results.
