Smith Magenis

ASM 17 French Smith-Magenis Support Group Annual Conference

Lucy Wilde and Jayne Trickett attended the ASM 17 French Smith-Magenis support group annual conference in June 2016.

Lucy and Jayne presented research from the team at the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders considering challenging behaviour that may be experienced by individuals with Smith-Magenis syndrome; focusing on self-injury and aggression. The nature of impulsivity in individuals with SMS was also discussed, alongside the question of autism and describing sleep disturbances.
