Currently, there is no known cure for a ZSWIM6-related ID. However, early interventions and educational programs can maximise learning and social development, and medications can help manage the symptoms.

Suggested surveillance:

  • Intellectual disability: Close developmental surveillance by a paediatrician with appropriate referral for early intervention and ongoing support at school.
  • Increased risk of a seizure disorder: Review by paediatrician/GP if any concerns regarding possible fits /’funny turns’/ blank episodes with a low threshold for referral to a neurologist/EEG.
  • Possible increased chance of later onset neurological conditions: Assessment by a neurologist.
  •  Gastrointestinal problems: A paediatrician can advise on management.
