Puberty

 
For parents, caregivers, health care providers, and teachers, concerns and questions often arise regarding the care and well-being of individuals with Cornelia de Lange syndrome. 

Most individuals with CdLS will go through puberty, though puberty is usually mildly delayed. The average age of puberty onset in CdLS is 15 years of age in boys and 13 years of age in girls.
