10th World Conference Cornelia de Lange Syndrome 2019

Together experts and families search for answers, find solutions and share best practice. Our understanding of CdLS is increased and families are better able to deal with challenges of raising their children.Together we strengthen friendship, in an emotionally safe environment. Parents are supported and encouraged to share concerns and and celebrate triumphs.

To celebrate the courage that you all showed by coming to our event we organize a party.It will be great to sit back and relax. Talk with your (new) friends or have a wine with the expert you have met in the past days. History showed that the galadiner is something to look out for...
