Williams syndrome, which affects 30,000 people in the U.S., is often called the opposite of autism.

Very interesting, William's syndrome.

What is it called when someone loves all the sisters? We had a case of that in our forum a couple of years ago. Let me think....something is coming to mind.... H-m-m, something about chocolate...what was the name....?  :( Anybody?

I have also worked in a residential facility where some of the children were  'huggers" though not necessarily William's syndrome. We had to train staff to accept side hugs  only and deflect /redirect when possible.  One thought was, "How would parents of any child feel about  hugging  20  or so persons per day?"  

 

Slightly off topic, when I was  nursing my children and sending mother's milk out to sick babies, I experienced first hand the effects of prolactin and oxytocin.  In my small experience, the bonding with ones newborn and the warm fuzzy feeling when nursing same, may be a  way to lessen post partem syndrome.   I don't know of any studies done on this.  Lactation cookies are said to help nursing moms relax and produce oxytocin. 

 

Maybe there is a way to reduce oxytocin production in  children  who have Williams Syndrome. WE certainly need the new System, but it would help to  have  some relief in the mean time.
