BEHAVIOURAL CHALLENGES IN CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH CdLS

Previous research into the behavioural characteristics of the syndrome has largely focused on the prevalence and nature of self-injurious behaviour in CdLS and possible underlying causes. More recently, research has widened and has begun to consider other behavioural characteristics of the syndrome.

SELF INJURIOUS BEHAVIOUR IN CORNELIA DE LANGE SYNDROME

Prof. Chris Oliver, together with a number of his colleagues at University of Birmingham have written a book for parents and carers to help towards an understanding of self-injurious behaviour when it is shown by a child or adult with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. By writing this book they hope that parents and carers will become informed about the causes of self-injurious behaviour and active contributors to the assessment and treatment process.

THE CORNELIA DE LANGE SYNDROME GENE EXPLAINED

Two articles describing the discovery of a gene on chromosome 5 were published in the June 2004 edition of the medical journal, Nature Genetics. Most people without a genetic science background would have difficulty understanding the articles. Dr Meredith Wilson, Professional Director and National SAC Representative, has provided a summary which will explain a little of what the research terms have shown and how they did this.
