The Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) Foundation provides a host of services for anyone touched by this little-known genetic syndrome and other isolating conditions.
If CdLS is Part of Your Life, We’re Here to Help
CdLS occurs in approximately 1 in 10,000 live births and the CdLS Foundation is honored to currently serve over 2,800 individuals with this rare genetic syndrome.
We also aim to reach the thousands more who live without a diagnosis and/or are unaware of services available to them. If you or someone you know would benefit from our many support services, please let us know!
International CdLS Remembrance Day
On February 12, the CdLS Foundation will host a live Facebook event at 12:00 PM EST for the entire CdLS community. The virtual event will honor individuals with CdLS who are no longer with us.
During the live vigil, Executive Director, Bonnie Royster, will offer words of encouragement and ask attendees to light a candle to remember individuals with CdLS who have passed away over the years.

Visit the Adult Transition page. Learn about the six core areas of transition. The six core areas are education, socialization, medical options, legal issues, living arrangements and government resources. Gain insight from other parents who have already gone through the process. Find resources that can help you and your family prepare for your loved one with CdLS becoming an adult.
There are a variety of ways you can be part of the community – whether it is through a fundraiser or volunteering – the options are endless.
The Foundation staff is the most caring and dedicated group of people who are always ready to listen or point us in the right direction when we desperately need help.”
