Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome (RTS) is a specific pattern of physical features and development disabilities, and is the result of a chromosomal abnormality, which occurs very early on in a baby’s development in the womb.
The syndrome is named after US doctors Jack Rubinstein and Hooshang Taybi, who first identified it, and it is estimated that it occurs in between 1 in 100,000 and 1 in 125,000 births. What causes the chromosomal defect is not known, and there is no known cure.
The RBS Support Group started in a small way with one mum keeping in touch with other affected families by telephone and letter. In 1986, a couple of families got together and started producing a newsletter and arranging annual get-togethers.
Over the years since then, membership has grown, links have been made with medical and psychology professionals, and events have become more sophisticated, and in 2012 we became a company limited by guarantee.
