I have a 5th grade student who has Klinefelters sydrome, what can I expect from him in the classroom?

Since I'm a teacher in Illinois, I may be out of line with your request, however, your special education personnel should be the ones answering this question. There are varying degrees of this condition.

However, the person should be of normal intelligence and the only problems that may arise will come about in PE class.
