Autism


Autism
Autism and autistic type behaviour has also been reported to be associated with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome 20, 25

However, in our survey of people with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome we found different results for autism depending on the measure that we used. One measure (Gilliam Autism Rating Scale) showed no difference between the two groups whilst a second measure (Childhood Autism Rating Scale) showed a statistically significant difference between the two groups with autism being more common in children and adults with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (see Box 2.7). It is important to clarify this issue as autism has been identified as a risk marker for the development of self-injurious behaviour 30 (see Chapter 3).

At present it is unclear whether autism is associated with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome and further research is needed. For both hyperactivity and autism if there is no association with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome it does not necessarily mean that these do not occur, it only means that they are no more likely to occur in children and adults with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome than in people who have the same degree of intellectual disability.
