Infant Attentional Behaviours as Prognostic Indicators in Cornelia-de-Lange Syndrome
Sarimski, Klaus
Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, v51 n9 p697-701 Sep 2007
Background: Cornelia-de-Lange syndrome is a rare congenital syndrome with poor social relatedness as one of several characteristics of its behavioural phenotype. Methods: Video observations were collected from seven children in their first year of life and again with age 2-4 years. Data were analysed for distribution of object-related and social attention and for relationships between early and later observations. Results: The findings suggest some inter-individual stability for social relatedness. Conclusions: Low frequency of eye-contact in early interaction may serve as a risk factor. Intensive early interaction is recommended in early stimulation programmes.
