Beginning July 1, the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) began providing services to people with Phelan-McDermid Syndrome. Also known as 22q13 Deletion Syndrome, Phelan-McDermid Syndrome is a genetic condition that results in varying degrees of intellectual disability, delayed or absent speech, symptoms of autism spectrum disorder, low muscle tone, motor delays, and epilepsy. The Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation International Family Conference will be held at the Caribe Royale Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando July 20-23.
