Drawings of a house by a child with Williams syndrome compared to a normally developing child.

When asked to draw freehand images of a house, William syndrome children were unable to present a logical arrangement of the building. Compared to a normal control of the same age, Williams syndrome individuals are highly impaired in spacial cognitive functions. The roof, 2-storey building, door, windows and pool are not arranged appropriately to form the shape of a house. These objects are identified as parts of a house, however there is a lack of the overall construct of the house.
