We present data from a group of studies documenting communication, behavior and educational choices for this population. We focus on 18 individuals who have participated in all of the studies since 1999. As a rare syndrome it is important to give families valid information since those professional working with them may not have experiences this syndrome before. In this way we are able to assist families in accessing the ???Gateway to Equity??. 1.
