    Williams Syndrome (WS) is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder associated with a specific cognitive profile of strengths and impairments. It has been argued that studying cognitive development of this disorder would not only allow improved knowledge of WS but also provide insight into alternative pathways in development. However, due to the rarity and nature of the disorder, there are a number of challenges to collect longitudinal data. This letter describes a new multi-lab based approach to examine development in WS longitudinally and discusses some of the challenges and solutions that need to be taken into account when putting together either previously obtained or newly collected data from different labs.
