Description

Twenty children with cri-du-chat syndrome were assessed on the Vineland Adaptive Behavioural Scales. Strengths within rather than between the adaptive domains were identified with posthoc analyses revealing the main differences to lie within the domains of Communication and Daily-living Skills. In the former domain, Receptive Skills were significantly more developed than Expressive and Written skills; and in the latter domain, Personal skills were significantly more developed than Community-based Skills. The core behavioural problems were Hyperactivity, poor Concentration span and Impulsivity. The implications of the present findings are discussed with reference to the development of effective remedial programmes that take into account the strengths and weaknesses in the adaptive and maladaptive profile of children with cri-du-chat syndrome.
