Age-related changes in cognition and behaviour

Para pais, prestadores de cuidados, prestadores de cuidados de saúde e professores, surgem frequentemente preocupações e questões relativas aos cuidados e bem-estar dos indivíduos com síndrome de Cornelia de Lange (CdLS).

Research has suggested that behavioural, emotional and cognitive characteristics in CdLS can change with age.

Findings from one study suggest an association between age and a higher number of behavioural difficulties in individuals with CdLS. In this study, older age was specifically associated with lower levels of interest and pleasure, and greater insistence on sameness. This suggests older individuals with CdLS display more difficulties.
