Default Visit to HD symptomatic birth relative?

Any experience of children meeting a significant adult relative ( for the first time)who is fairly advanced in HD symptoms. Chorea. Voice.mobility limited etc. Not sure about behavioural, but is in supported housing.
It maybe the only time they meet if we ask for it to go ahead. The children have had no exposure to people with HD symptoms nor has it been voiced as an illness or possibility for them yet.They are 6 and 4. Have had access to and provision for kids with special needs due to elder one being truly very aggressive , demanding, and controlling etc.(no diagnosis)
Just .thanks all. Its not something I can put out there for general chit chat.
