Abstract
Development and behaviour was investigated in a sample of 44 children and a dults with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS) using the Society for the Study of Behavioural Phenotypes Postal Questionnaire. There were few differences between males and females. Children and adults were compared. Most of the R TS adults communicated using speech but expressive speech was limited. Repe titive speech and repetitive movements, verbal abuse and over-friendliness with strangers were reported. Mood abnormalities and problems with self-inj ury were reported for about half the people surveyed. Toilet training appea red to take a long time, but the majority of adults surveyed were fully con tinent.
