15.00: Start programme

  • We kick off with Paula Fikkert, professor of first language acquisition at Radboud University.
  • Then we listen to Else Eising, postdoctoral researcher at Language and Genetics Department of the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
  • Miloe Kennis (physician-researcher Clinical Genetics) and Lot Snijders Blok (Clinical Geneticist) of the Radboudumc tell us more about the study GenTOS; what does our DNA tell us? They update you on the latest results of genetic research in children with TOS, and what this can mean for current practice and for the future.
  • Finally, Tessel Boerma (researcher at the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS at the University Medical Center Utrecht) will tell you more about the language skills of children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome and the implications for children with TOS.
