I had to google Williams' Syndrome. Does your son have developmental delays? If so, you need a very simple book, for younger children.

thank you for taking the time to google it. i was going to put a link, but i forgot yes, he does have developmental delays, so yes, it needs to be somewhat simple. but his body still goes through the regular physical changes at the normal time.
