The eXceptional Kids Clinic at EmorY

NOTE:  This clinic is newly reopened after the departure of Dr. Visootsak and the arrival of Dr. Talboy. 

The eXceptional Kids Clinic at EmorY is a unique interdisciplinary clinic at Emory University that addresses the medical, developmental, and psychological needs of children and adolescents with X & Y chromosome variations. This includes XXY/Klinefelter syndrome, XYY, Trisomy X, XXYY, and all other sex chromosome variations.
Our team has experience with these conditions and will provide specific recommendations to meet your child’s needs. Our clinic is a specialized resource and complements the care provided by your child’s pediatrician.

What can we expect during our clinic visit?

During your initial clinic visit, we will: discuss your child’s specific needs, particularly in areas of development, education, language, motor, social skills, and behavior. We will also discuss the genetic aspects of the condition.
We will develop a treatment plan specific to your child’s needs. This plan will provide recommendations to help maximize your child’s potential and support your child’s developmental, academic, social, and medical management. We will also make referrals to specialists as needed, and most importantly, address your questions and concerns.
