The aim of this research is to investigate behaviour in Russell-Silver syndrome (RSS). This will be assessed in a semi-structured interview in order to assess behaviours such as communication skills and social skills. A further aim of the research is to explore how individuals with RSS learn and to establish whether certain strengths and difficulties are common for these individuals. Cognitive abilities will be measured using a number of different tasks that involve skills such as remembering information, understanding a conversation and making patterns.
