CDKL5 Canada is proud to share CDKL5 Disorder - A Guide for Parents. The guidebook was made possible by the combined efforts of the CDKL5 foundations. We would like to thank Rett UK for allowing the use of information from their National Best Practices Guidelines 2013 and Dr. John Christodoulou for writing the foreword.
We would also like to thank Dr. Melissa Carter, Clinical Geneticist and Child Development Specialist from the Hospital for Sick Children for reviewing and adapting the guide for Canadians.
The guide details a brief introduction on the disorder, recognizing and diagnosing, clinical symptoms with treatment and therapeutic options that may be helpful for individuals living with CDKL5 disorder.
