What is Worster-Drought Syndrome?

(Also known as "CONGENITAL SUPRABULBAR PARESIS")

This condition is a form of cerebral palsy. The main problems occur with the mouth, tongue and swallowing muscles as a result of the bulbar muscles being affected. There are usually no obvious causes in the pregnancy or birth but some varieties are genetically determined. Because of the range of problems the diagnosis is often made quite late.

It is self evident from observing the children of the group that there is a wide range of abilities between children diagnosed as having Worster-Drought Syndrome.
