learning disablities with horners/harlequin syndrome

i am refering to a post previously from shelly starbucks,otr,about a 7 y.o. being refered to her for occupational therap i have a child in similar circumstances (has horners/with the flushing,and is 7)- my child has reading comprehension problems and fine moter skill issues.we have been stuggling in school for sometime and has been flying below the radar, but i sense something isnt right.i did have a difficult birth(vacume) and she suffered a head hematoma that enlarged at 12 weeks of age-mri scan provided the information that there was no internal hematoma- it was superficial. the harlequin flushing developed/or present at birth,doctors are not sure,but said all is benign however,i would like to find out more information in regards to reports of learning disabilities with horners- thanks for your time
