Abstract

Background: Phelan-McDermid syndrome is a rare genetic disorder with an unknown prevalence. The overall developmental delay as a hallmark of the syndrome requires the rehabilitational interventions. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of motor rehabilitation on an established syndrome of Phelan-McDermid. Case Report: In this study, a four-year old child with Phelan-McDermid syndrome diagnosis is reported. His gross motor skills and upper extremity functional skills were delayed. Accordingly, a 12-week motor rehabilitation program was planned and carried out. Conclusion: Findings of this case report show that the common approaches to motor rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy and motor delay are applicable for children diagnosed with Phelan-McDermid syndrome. However, further studies are required to generalize the findings.
