Imagine ID is a research project funded by the Medical Research Council looking at how a child’s DNA affects development, particularly in relation to learning disorders.
The study want to answer a question parents often ask when their child receives a genetic condition: what does this mean for my child? A genetic diagnosis is just the beginning…
We want to understand the challenges families face, help improve care and find better treatments.
We need your help. Can your family take part?
Helping children understand genetic illness
“Most days I’m like the other birds. Other days though, I am not. And I have to be very brave.”
Avery, a new children’s book produced through a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University, tells the story of a young bird who is born to be different from the other birds.
Being born with a genetic disease can be confusing and frightening, not only for a child, but also their parents and siblings. This book was created to help parents start what is often a difficult conversation with their child.
