1996) reported on cases of two families with a partial deletion in the WS region that included the LIMK1 gene. These family members demonstrated pronounced deficits in visuospatial processing and vascular disease but not other aspects of the WS phenotype. These cases led Frangiskakis et al. (1996) to speculate that the visuospatial deficits observed almost universally in individuals with WS were likely linked to the deletion of the LIMK1 gene. However, Tassabehji et al. (1999) attempted to replicate this work and did not report similar deficits in individuals with the partial deletion.

Granted, the IDD field has its problems, including a researcher population that continues to skew older (Havercamp, Tasse, Lunsky, & Garcin, 2003), concerns about how the next generation of IDD researchers will find jobs and continue supporting their research (Baumeister, 1997), and an IDD population that seems rarely to constitute a hot topic in any discipline (Hodapp & Dykens, 2006). At times, even the American IDD infrastructure of research, service, and training seems at risk, as the wider world seems oblivious to the importance of such an infrastructure in maintaining a vibrant, growing field.
