Abstract

Turner's syndrome (TS) is an abnormality of the X chromosome associated with cognitive and psychosocial adjustment problems as well as congenital anomalies. Children with TS are at risk for problems in academic achievement and psychosocial development. Recognition of these risks allows nurses to provide nursing interventions including anticipatory guidance, facilitation of parental interactions with the school, and interventions for management of problems in psychosocial development.
