May is Williams Syndrome Awareness Month.
Williams Syndrome (WS) is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. Some of the characteristics of Williams Syndrome include cardio issues, developmental delays and learning disabilities. These often occur side-by-side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities, and a great affinity for music.
WS affects one in 10,000 people. It is known to occur equally in both males and females and in every culture. Unlike disorders that can make connecting with your child difficult, children with WS tend to be social, friendly, and endearing. Parents often say the joy and perspective a child with WS brings into their lives has been unimaginable.
So why is Williams Syndrome Awareness Month so important to In the Cove? ITC's wonderful content assistant, Yumi, has a child with Williams Syndrome, so we wanted to raise awareness about this rare condition.
