Emilio and Marcos were born with a rare genetic disorder. So rare, that the name/label or DNA address of the disorder has not been identified to date. Both boys have hypotonia, low muscle tone. Emilio has apraxia of speech, he says just a few words, but understands what you say. He knows over 300 signs and uses about 30 in conversation. Emilio and Marcos are both globally delayed and have a great deal of hard work ahead of them.
