About

We are a small group of dads that have come together to support each other.This is due to our children and young adults living with Smith Magenis Syndrome. we support each other in a number of ways but mainly by just chatting and relating to life experiences, so we have decided to take up the three peaks challenge, a challenge that will push us to the limit with next to no sleep this is something we are used to as it is part of the syndrome that our lovely children being diagnosed with. Smith-Magenis syndrome is a genetic disability due to a microdeletion or abnormality of chromosome 17. The major features of Smith-Magenis Syndrome (SMS) include mild to moderate intellectual disability, delayed speech and language skills, distinctive facial features, sleep disturbances, and behavioural problems.The behavioural problems can be exhibited in a variety of ways, frequent temper tantrums, meltdowns, impulsivity, anxiety, distractibility, aggression and self-injurious behaviours including self-hitting, self-biting, and skin picking.so please get behind this great team of dads who are trying to spread awareness for their children.
