What is a disorder of the corpus callosum?

The corpus callosum is the major connection between the two sides of the brain.

A disorder of the corpus callosum (DCC) is a rare, congenital, neurological condition in which the corpus callosum fails to fully develop or does not develop at all.  It is an abnormality in the development of brain structure, before birth.

Our Stories

When diagnosed with a disorder of the corpus callosum (DoCC) parents are often told to ‘wait and see’. We can’t tell you what the outcome will be.  All our stories are different.

By reading our stories, you can see these differences as we share the journey together.

AusDoCC history

The ausDoCC committee was formed by a group of parents of children with a disorder of the corpus callosum (DoCC) in 2012. It has since expanded to include adults with a DoCC. Through lived experience we aim to uphold our vision of supporting individuals, families and caregivers affected by a DoCC, through advocating, uniting and supporting.
