What is Willims syndrome?

Williams Syndrome (WS) is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone but is rare.  It is characterized by medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning challenges.  These often occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities, and an affinity for music. WS occurs equally in males and females and in all cultures worldwide. Generally, individuals with WS see the "good" in things, are overly kind, expressive, and outgoing.
