Williams Beuren Syndroom

For parents, caregivers, health care providers, and teachers, concerns and questions often arise regarding the care and well-being of individuals with Williams-Beuren syndroom.

The syndrome occurs just as often in boys as in girls. The congenital disorder is accompanied by physical abnormalities and a mild to severe mental handicap. As a result, children growing up with WBS have an increased risk of developmental delay, learning difficulties and delayed motor development.

The severity and nature of the problems differs per person. Some complaints/phenomena only occur during the course of life and can gradually increase in severity.
