Breaking Through “Glass Syndrome”
Camryn Shomo, 11, of State College, Pa., was diagnosed in 2016 with Glass Syndrome, specifically SATB2-Associated Syndrome. Glass Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that’s often characterized by developmental delay and intellectual disability, along with limited speech development. Due to her disability, Camryn is non-verbal but uses her iPad, gestures, and sign language to communicate. With the support of family and friends, Camryn’s disability has not stopped her from experiencing life to the fullest.
