Readers should better understand genetic intellectual disabilities and how they affect individual behaviours. Researchers and practitioners, including mental health professionals, speech–language therapists, special educators and social workers, should learn considerably more about actively researched syndromes such as Down, Williams, Fragile–X, Prader–Willi, Angelman, Rett, 5–p (Cri–du–chat), Noonan and several others, and obtain the evidence–based information they need to improve developmental, educational, occupational and residential situations, favouring inclusion for the people with intellectual disability syndromes.
