Angelman Syndrome Foundation Webinar Series

The Angelman Syndrome Foundation sponsored a series of 42 webinars last year designed for teachers, therapists and parents of children with Angelman Syndrome. Angelman is a complex neurogenetic disorder found in 1 in 15,000 live births. Characteristics of this disorder include, but are not limited to significant developmental delays,  little or no speech and motor impairments. The video highlighted below is the story of Ever and her journey to a diagnosis. It provides other families and educational teams more information about the symptoms and characteristics of Angelman.

These free recorded webinars might be useful to anyone involved with students who score in the 1st percentile across domains and are emergent in their communication and literacy skills. The topics include: how to get started with AAC, integrating core vocabulary into the school day, shared reading, shared writing, independent writing, and more. The series presenters include Erin Sheldon (ES), Maureen Nevers (MN), Caroline Musselwhite (CM), Mary-Louise Bertram (MB).
