The Williams Syndrome Center

As the only Williams syndrome center serving the geographic area between Boston and Philadelphia, the Williams Syndrome Center at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) brings together in one location a multidisciplinary team of highly specialized pediatric experts to provide the comprehensive medical care needed for Williams syndrome patients of every age. We can personalize every evaluation, and during our morning clinics, patients and their families can rotate their appointments between the geneticist and counselor, cardiologist, developmental specialist and an overall case manager.

CHAM social workers provide ongoing support to patients and their families. The team also includes a clinical/school psychologist and a speech/language therapist who are available for screenings, full evaluations and consultations about academic programs and school-related issues. Other specialists in the Center include pediatric nephrologists, developmentalists, gastroenterologists, neurologists, endocrinologists and metabolic specialists.

Diagnosis can be made as early as the newborn period or as late as adulthood. Lifetime patient management is at the core of the CHAM program. As children with Williams Syndrome develop from infancy through adulthood they typically encounter a number of issues unique to each age — all clearly defined in the published guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Montefiore is able to address their requirements and to provide the attention of disparate pediatric specialists who are familiar with their patients’ unique physical, mental and psychosocial needs at every age.
