The Education of Learners with CHARGE Syndrome
Deuce, Gail
British Journal of Special Education, v44 n4 p376-393 Dec 2017
CHARGE syndrome, although a low incidence condition, is now recognised as a leading cause of congenital deafblindness among genetic conditions. Anecdotal reporting has suggested that learners with CHARGE syndrome are distinct from the wider deafblind population. This study investigates the education of learners with CHARGE syndrome, while also examining what the similarities and differences might be between this group of learners and the wider deafblind population. The findings of this study support the identification of potential learning characteristics of individuals with CHARGE syndrome, and also indicate that educational deafblind practice is applicable for this group of learners, although alternative or additional strategies may be required. Both commonalities and distinctions were found, but it was concluded that educationally there may be something unique and distinct in learners with this condition.
