Hello from JA
This is an extremely rare genetic syndrome.

There is no cure currently and nothing on the horizon.
Treatment is treating the various problems, such as surgery for bony abnormalities. Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy as indicated.

Behavioral therapy if needed.

Here are references and resources from the nih.
