Title: A Teen Talks About Living with Williams Syndrome
Guest: Eva Stoll and Miriam Stoll
Recorded on: 06/02/2014


Have you ever heard of Williams Syndrome? I hadn't, when many years ago I ran into the mother of a child diagnosed with Williams while bringing my autistic son to physical therapy. At that time, she stated that Williams is almost the opposite of autism in this regard, language is terrific and her daughter had extreme social skills well beyond her years. Well, fast forward 10 years…this little girl is now a teenager. Her name is Eva and her mom Miriam is a licensed psychologist, working hard for inclusion in the public schools. This interview will tell you much, much more.
