Sensory deficits and temperature insensibility


        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 syndroom. 

There is some evidence that individuals with CdLS have sensory deficits and temperature insensibility.
Sensory signals are about how Sight, Smell, Taste, Sound, Pressure (feeling objects or impact), Balancing and Awareness of where their body parts are in space. How are these signals processed by the brain? In combination with signals from the body (sensations, pain) there might be difficulties for a person with CdLS to prioritize and process these signals. As a example this could create anxiety-like behavior.
