About Angelman Syndrome

One of the most common visible characteristics of children with Angelman Syndrome is their infectious laughter and happy excitable demeanour. Please help us to keep the smile on their faces. Angelman Syndrome (often abbreviated AS) is a severe neurological disorder characterized by profound developmental delays, problems with motor coordination (ataxia) and balance, and epilepsy. Individuals with AS do not develop functional speech. The seizure disorder in individuals with Angelman Syndrome can be difficult to treat. Feeding disorders in infancy are common, and some persist throughout childhood. Sleeping difficulties are commonly noted in individuals with Angelman Syndrome. AS affects all races and both genders equally. Visit the Angelman Syndrome website.
