Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome Video Release
Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS) is a rare genetic syndrome affecting approximately 1 in 100,000 individuals. People with RTS typically have in intellectual disability and may show particular behaviours more often than people who have intellectual disability but do not have a diagnosis of RTS. It also appears that individuals with RTS may some a specific profile of cognitive strengths and weaknesses, which may impact on how individuals with RTS process information about the world around them. Over the last 10 years, the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders has been working with the RTS Syndrome Support Group in the UK to conduct research into difficulties that some individuals with RTS experience. The areas that the Cerebra Centre have researched have focused on repetitive behaviour, problem solving and how the brain processes information, social behaviour and the ways in which people with RTS think about social situations.
The Cerebra Centre have produced three videos that introduce the research that the Cerebra Centre has conducted with people RTS. The first video introduces some of the children with RTS and the key research findings, and the second and third video give some brief recommendations for supporting people with RTS. There are also four documents that can be downloaded below that summarise this information.
