Wait, How Do You Spell That? A Rare Disease Podcast

When your son has the sixth SYNGAP-1 diagnosis in the world- Ft. Monica Weldon from Bridge the Gap

April 17, 2020

During rare disease week, we had the chance to talk to Monica Weldon, whose son was the sixth person diagnosed with SYNGAP-1, a gene mutation linked to autism. She tells us about her journey from working as a school teacher to becoming the CEO and founder of Bridge the Gap, the first SYNGAP-1 advocacy organization in the world. She shares what it was like to receive a diagnosis that had no structure in place for her son, and how she pushed through the hard times and make progress in research and awareness of sensory processing disorders.
