If you have arrived at FIND you are likely to be a parent, carer and/or professional who wants to learn more about a rare genetic syndrome that affects your child or someone you know.

In our experience...

When a person receives a diagnosis of a genetic syndrome, families and carers can respond in many different ways. Families need to think through what a diagnosis means in their own time.  Some families may prefer to learn everything they can about a syndrome straight away, whereas others may prefer to gather information as they go, because having too much information can feel overwhelming.  Many families have described feeling split between these two positions and moving back and forth between them.

FIND is...

driven by the aim of providing current research findings to
families and professionals in an bite-sized format.
