Bumping this back to the top . . . I'm not sure anyone can really answer that question. I know some of the children of our members do have challenges, I just don't know if the percentage is higher than the normal population. There are SO many special needs with everyone's kids right now . . . likely because of our processed food and possible the way we vaccinate. (not against vaccines, just worry about
how young its started and how many they do in one day and there is some controversy over the ingredients).
I'm so sorry your kids are being challenged like that. I have four adult children. One of the four has a learning disability, but he managed very well after HE decided to work a plan to manage it (sometime in his teens). He has since gone on to do a couple years at a local college and has a good job and lives on his own.
I think what you will find within families of Lupans is other auto-immune issues (chrons, scleroderma, asthma, epilepsy, sjogrens, etc. ) . . . but your questions is very interesting.
I'll be watching this topic.
