What Can Be Done For Xyy Chromosome Pattern?

my great nephew has been diagnosed with xyy chromosome pattern. I am wondering what we can do for him. He is 8 years old now, being held back in one year in school. Taller than all the other boys in class. His father has not really been determined yet. But the man that they are interested in has this too.

Hi
XYY Syndrome is also sometimes called Jacob’s Syndrome, XYY Karyotype, or YY Syndrome.

Males with XYY Syndrome live typical lives for the most part. Some males with XYY Syndrome may be taller than average and face learning difficulties or speech problems. They may also grow up with minor physical differences, such as weaker muscles and bones and delayed puberty. When they are older, men with the syndrome may face fertility issues and complications related to low testosterone levels. Besides these complications, however, males with XYY syndrome do not usually have any distinguishing physical features or complications, and have normal sexual development.

In case of any further information on this, do call back.
