Dup15q Alliance provides family support and promotes awareness, research and targeted treatments for dup15q syndrome. Symptoms of this rare genetic disorder include autism, seizures and developmental delays. Every two years we hold a conference for affected families to provide education on the latest treatments for dup15q and to create a sense of hope and community that is often difficult for our 1,000 registered families to find locally due to the rarity of the disorder.
Dup15q syndrome is a rare genetic disorder caused by a duplication of chromosome 15q11-13. Individuals with this disorder often have autism, seizures and global developmental delays. Parents have a difficult time finding information on dup15q due to it's rarity.
