Professional Directory

Welcome to the Professional Directory

The purpose of the directory is to allow professionals with considerable experience with Kabuki to share their knowledge with those who may only see one or two children in their careers. The members have usually had experience with multiple children and are able to recognize the differing presentations of the syndrome. If you would like to be added to the list of contacts on this page, please contact KSN.
