    Thank you so much for this article; I will get the original from the LD Journal …. it is interesting to view the three kinds of case studies. I’ve been working on a case study for a high school student with Turner’s syndrome and have been trying to incorporate this approach. I was interested to learn about “evidence based diagnosis” and the “hallmark phenotypes” as described by Berninger and cited in your article here. Thanks again,
