  • Abstract: he studyThe aim of this study was to investigate self-esteem in children with Williams–Beuren syndrome. As in the studies by Perron and Pierrehumbert, we focused mainly on the education status of these children.Patients and methodsUsing the SEI scale (Coopersmith S. Inventaire d’estime de soi, SEI, ECPA (Éditions du Centre de Psychologie Appliquée), 1984), we evaluated the level of self-esteem of eight children with Williams–Beuren syndrome aged nine to ten years, four of whom were attending a Clis, the other four being in the third year of mainstream education (CE2). This scale was also administered to eight unaffected children.ResultsThe main results showed that the children with Williams–Beuren syndrome had a lower level of self-esteem than their unaffected peers. On the other hand, there was no significant difference in type of education.ConclusionQuestions related to the choice of type of education are discussed, with the aim of helping both families and teachers to find the most appropriate type of education for the personal characteristics of children with Williams–Beuren syndrome.
