Cognitive strengths and weaknesses in Fragile X syndrome and Cornelia de Lange syndrome

This project focuses on the social differences experienced by children with Fragile X syndrome and Cornelia de Lange syndrome. We are recruiting children 4 years and above who have Cornelia de Lange syndrome, or Fragile X syndrome  as well as autistic children and typically developing children. We run sessions for children (4 years and above) filled with fun activities, tasks and eye-tracking assessments, that investigate a range of abilities including social and communication skills.
