Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome, UK Support Group
39 Hale Road
The Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome UK Support Group has been offering support for a number of years to parents with children affected by Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome. Characteristic features of this syndrome include short stature, broad thumbs and/or great toes, facial abnormalities, and learning disabilities. Initially, one mother who kept in touch with everyone by telephone or letter gave support. In 1986, a few families organized the support group by producing a newsletter and arranging annual get-togethers. Since then, the group has grown from 45 to 142 families, and it offers support to a number of families in other countries where there is no support group.
