Children with 15q11-q13 duplications are at high risk for neurodevelopmental disabilities, particularly autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual disability (ID). The purpose of this study is to systematically characterize cognitive and social-communication abilities in children with dup15q syndrome, using standardized behavioral testing, play-based assessments, and EEG. The overarching goal is to determine if there are specific areas of strength or impairment that may serve as targets for behavioral intervention.
Who can participate?
Children between 1 and 18 years of age with either dup15q syndrome
Children between 1 and 18 years with an intellectual disability or global developmental delay
What does the study involve?
The study will involve approximately 4 hours of testing, including parent questionnaires, behavioral evaluations of the child, and a 45-minute high-density EEG session. We will provide each family with written and verbal feedback on the behavioral testing.
