Development in the Face of Lissencephaly

Today we saw a 19 month old little boy who has been on the Snowdrop Programme for 5 months. He has Lissencephaly, (a genetic condition which essentially means that his cortex does not have the folds which are normally there, it is smooth). This was his 2nd assessment and there were some nice improvements to see in vision, tactile perception, hand function and reciprocal communication. Again, this proves that even in the face of altered genetic expression, we can still stimulate development.
