What is a disorder of the corpus callosum?

The corpus callosum is the major connection between the two hemispheres of the brain. A disorder of the corpus callosum (DCC) occurs when the corpus callosum, the major connecting structure between the two hemispheres of the brain, is partially or fully absent at birth. Disorders are often collectively referred to as ‘agenesis of the corpus callosum’ or ‘ACC.’

Our Stories

When a child is diagnosed with a disorder of the corpus callosum (DCC) parents are often told to ‘wait and see’ as the impacts are many and varied and range from mild to severe. When an adult is diagnosed, it may explain a lifetime of medical puzzles.  All our stories are different. Through sharing our stories, we can see these differences and also the similarities.

AusDoCC history

AusDoCC Inc. was created by a group of mothers of children with a disorder of the corpus callosum (DCC) in 2012. It has since expanded to include adults with a DCC, partners and grandparents. Through lived experience we aim to uphold our vision to ROAR for AusDoCC for Recognition, Opportunities, Access and Resources.
