Dr Andre Strydom, Consultant Psychiatrist in Learning Disabilities at C&I, focuses on recognising and treating mental disorders in adults with neurodevelopmental conditions − including people with intellectual disabilities, Down Syndrome, Autism and Asperger Syndrome, and ADHD. 

His particular interest is in research on how to diagnose and manage the memory problems some people experience as they get older and the mechanisms that underlie associations between genetic conditions such as Down Syndrome and Alzheimer’s Disease, and which could help us to identify new treatments.
