Is there treatment for Angelman syndrome?
Like most genetic disorders, there is presently no cure for Angelman syndrome. Individuals with Angelman syndrome benefit from treatment and management of common health concerns, including seizures, sleep disorders, movement disorders, speech impairment, intellectual disabilities, and hyperactivity. A variety of treatments, including physical therapy, speech & communication therapy, occupational therapy, and behavioral therapy can be used to help individuals with Angelman syndrome reach their full potential.
For more information about therapies, speak to your child's doctor, and consider reaching out to family support groups, such as The Angelman Syndrome Foundation or the The Angelman Network.
