PWSA (USA) was organised in 1975 to provide support for individuals, families, professionals and organisations and to be a resource for education and information about Prader-Willi syndrome
Information and Advice
Our teams are here to help you and have a huge amount of experience in guiding and advising social workers and families with loved ones who have Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). We’re very happy to help with anything from straightforward questions through to complex issues. We have developed some supporting materials which can be downloaded below including; Hints and Tips on how to manage Behaviour associated with PWS, a Medical Alerts Brochure which is a vital companion for family, healthcare and medical professionals and an easy read guide to our services for people with additional learning disabilities.
It’s also important to remember that there are many respected and trusted organisations out there in the field who are also great sources of help and advice and we’ve included a selection below. We have close links with the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (PWSA) supporting their fundraising initiatives and member events and also support research projects by the Foundation for Prader-Will Research
