Answer

Early intervention is often useful. In addition, children affected by Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome may benefit from receiving follow-up care from a geneticist, metabolic-disease specialist, and/or behavioral/developmental pediatrician familiar with the complications and long-term needs of patients with Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome.
