Abstract

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Williams Syndrome Foundation and to raise awareness of Williams syndrome, we have put together 40 research-evidenced facts about Williams syndrome. Williams Syndrome is a rare genetic condition that is caused by a deletion of genetic material on the long arm of chromosome 7. It occurs sporadically in about 1 in 18,000 people. This fact sheet provides information on the medical aspects, brain development, cognitive and behavioural profiles, education, support and intervention and career outcomes of people with Williams syndrome, all of which are based on scientific research. These facts were randomly chosen from topics that we discussed during our lab meetings. This fact sheet can be used as a resource to pass on to family members, teachers and professionals.
