About CdLS

Meet the Experts

The CdLS Foundation enlists help from various experts in the medical, educational and professional fields to provide families with the most up-to-date information and advice.

The CdLS Foundation’s Clinical Advisory Board (CAB), Professional Development Committee (PDC) and Educational Advisory Group (EAG) are comprised of some of the foremost specialists in the fields of genetics, education, research, psychiatry, and much more.  Many volunteer their time to answer questions through our Ask the Expert service and provide consultations at family gatherings/conferences.
