Angelman Syndrome Clinic

Angelman syndrome is a genetic disorder causing delays in development and neurological issues or symptoms. These may include problems with speech, balance and walking. In some cases, Angelman syndrome can be associated with seizures.

Angelman syndrome usually isn't recognized until a child shows delays in development (such as not crawling or babbling) between 6 to 12 months of age. Sometimes seizures begin between the ages of 2 and 3 years old. Treatment focuses on managing medical and developmental issues.
