Growth Charts for Boys

Common Growth of Children with CdLS
Children are often assessed by their weight and height on growth charts that show the average growth rate
for typical children. Since children with CdLS are often compared to a typical childs growth rate, many
are incorrectly diagnosed with failure to thrive, a condition that focuses primarily on weight gain. Often,
parents also consider placing the child on a high-calorie formula or food supplement and/or increasing the
number of feedings per day to spur growth. Presently, there is no clear-cut evidence that either have long-
term benefits.
What medical professionals unfamiliar with CdLS do not recognize is that although children with CdLS
gain weight slowly, their growth is usually in proportion to their height throughout their lives.
To better educate parents of children with CdLS and their health care providers , CdLS Foundation
Medical Director Antonie D. Kline, M.D., and her colleagues developed gender-specific growth charts
based on research and data collected over many years.
