Steven is 13 years old. This year we were so lucky having Dr. Carlin from Fort Worth, Tx as a guest for a couple of days at our home. With regard to the CDC-syndrome Dr. Carlin is a very experienced doctor. After examination of Steven and having a look at the medical documents about Steven (we brought those along from the USA) and because Steven is developing slower than typically for the CDC she came to the end that besides the syndrome probably insufficient oxygen supply during birth contributes to the delay in developement.
