MODULARITY

  • Williams Syndrome (WS):

    • (more or less) general cognitive retardation except in language

    • Results from the deletion of the long arm of chromosome 7.

  • Specific Language Impairment (SLI):

    • Language problems without any obvious cause.

    • fifty to seventy percent of children with SLI have at least one other family member with the disorder

  • If the brain is a general purpose problem solver, one’s

general intelligence should be predictive of abilities such as language.

  • For people affected by WS or SLI that’s simply not true.
