What is Williams Syndrome?
Williams syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that can lead to problems with development. Symptoms of Williams Syndrome include delays in development of speech, difficulty paying attention, feeding problems, problems with thinking and learning, and short stature.
There is no cure for Williams syndrome. However, medical interventions can help to address symptoms. Additionally, physical therapy and speech therapy can be helpful to improve overall development.
More information is available through the Williams Syndrome Association or through Medline Plus, a service of the National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health.
