Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

There's no cure for Angelman syndrome. Research is focusing on targeting specific genes for treatment. For now, treatment focuses on managing the medical and developmental issues.

A team of health care professionals will likely work with you to manage your child's condition. Depending on your child's signs and symptoms, treatment for Angelman syndrome may involve:

  • Anti-seizure medication to control seizures
  • Physical therapy to help with walking and movement problems
  • Communication therapy, which may include sign language and picture communication
  • Behavior therapy to help overcome hyperactivity and a short attention span and to aid in development
