Education Professional Packet

If you are an educator or therapist with a student/client with CHARGE syndrome, this information is for you. This packet was developed to provide a brief introduction to the complex world of CHARGE and some strategies to consider in education and therapeutic settings.

Read the ASHA Leader reprint for an overview of genetics, clinical diagnosis, ears and hearing, feeding, behavior and education and David Brown’s article on Behavior in CHARGE. After that, pick and choose sections that apply more directly to your area(s).
