Speech and Language Intervention in Child with Rubinstein–Taybi Syndrome
The study explained a case of Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS) in connection with the speech and language intervention (SLI). He was diagnosed as speech and language developmental delay. After speech and language therapy (SLT), there was improvement observed in his comprehension and expression language age. REELS test was administered before and after the SLT to the child which revealed that there was good improvement in his comprehension and expression language skills. Result of the present study focused that individuals with RTS syndrome can also be rehabilitate if he/she is diagnosed with RTS as earlier as possible.
