A Younger Brother’s Perspective
Paul is an eight year old boy. He is the younger brother of Peter, an individual diagnosed with KAT6A syndrome.
My brother Peter has kat6a and he is very smart. He can’t talk. He likes to go to Six Flags and Hershey Park. He loves to go on roller coasters with me. One time he went on a very scary roller coaster but I couldn’t go on it because I wasn’t tall enough. He likes to ride his bike, play golf, tube, ski, play in the snow, drive the bumper cars with me, jump on bouncy houses, go to the beach, go to the pool, to eat food and build snowmen. He likes to eat a lot of food. My parents are finding out how we can help him be like a normal kid. He doesn’t go to school because he got kicked out of school because of his behavior. Now he is at home school. He also likes to eat stuff with sugar. Sometimes at my school some people make fun of him, they say “brrr” and clap their hands like my brother. I feel sad for him. I tell the people who do that did you know that my brother helps me in stuff but sometimes he is annoying. My brother is very good in math he got 99 percent on his math test. He’s better than me in reading the notes, the first time he sees the notes he plays them but now I know how to do that because I know what the notes are.
