Williams Syndrome

Hey guys

I found this interesting article that talks about a rare genetic disorder called Williams Syndrome. This disorder has to do with the inability to understand or recognize spatial cognition. Children with this disease also have what you would call an extreme fascination with music. This is an illustration of a boy with Williams Syndrome attempting to draw an elephant.

Elephant drawing This is the caption under the picture….

“The dissociation between language and spatial cognition in Williams Syndrome is evident in this contrast between the drawing and verbal description of an elephant by an 15-year old with WMS (IQ of 49).”
