"When and how do phenotypic profiles start during the developmental process, and can they be impacted by the environment and family? US researchers in child psychiatry, developmental disabilities, genomics, and neurodevelopment investigate these questions in this special issue of theInternational Review of Developmental Disabilities . Contributors describe the latest research on early development in children with neurogenetic disorders that cause intellectual disability and shed light on the relationship between genetic conditions and phenotypic expression, and the link between neurogenetic disorder and behavioral outcomes. Some specific subjects addressed include social-cognitive skills in young children with Williams Syndrome, early diagnosis of chromosomal disorders associated with intellectual disability, and diagnosing autism in those with known genetic syndromes. Fidler teaches human development and family studies at Colorado State University."-- Reference and Research Book News,October 2012
