Angelman Syndrome Awareness Day

We have learned so much by working with children with Angelman Syndrome (AS) over the years. Because they generally have complex communication needs, we wanted to share some resources in support of AS Awareness Day.

  1. Overview of AS by The Angelman Syndrome Foundation
  2. Information about the 2013 Biennial Angelman Syndrome Conference in Orlando, Florida
  3. Learning modules on AS and behavior (Must register for a free account to access the content.)
  4. Videos from a recent educational seminar by Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST) that was held in Chicago. The main speakers are Erin Sheldon and Mary-Louise Bertram.

    Angelman Syndrome is a rare desease affilicting one in 15,000 births worldwide. It has no influence within sex, color or creed. Parents of Agelman Syndrome (AS) children live a life long battle for the awerness of their children. Thier smiles hide the frustration of non verbal communication, unaceceptation of others, behavior issues and others. Yet, their view on this world is without predudice. They love without limit. They see the beauty in others. Thier smile is beyond bridges.
