Welcoming members with Weaver Syndrome - read more...

The Child Growth Foundation is pleased to announce that it will now be offering advice and support for families and individuals with Weaver Syndrome. 

On this site, you can find helpful information whether you are a parent whose child has a suspected or diagnosed growth problem, an adult or family member of someone with a growth or endocrine disorder, or a medical professional.

We aim to:

  • Support and encourage all children or adults with growth disorders, and their families, in every way we can
  • Promote and fund research into the causes and cure of growth and endocrine disorders, and publish the results
  • Educate the public, especially medical professionals, in the challenges those with growth and endocrine disorders are likely to face
  • Encourage medical professionals at all levels to monitor growth and development. We provide training and equipment to ensure that all growth measuring is undertaken accurately and appropriately

If you would like more information on the activities of the Foundation, or have any concerns and would like some advice please contact us.
