New Diagnosis of Angelman Syndrome

Newly Diagnosed

Audrey Angelman

You’re not alone.

The breaking of that awful feeling of isolation is the greatest gift one Angelman family can give to another . . . Those of you who will share your experiences will do it because in the Angelman family, that is what we do. Whatever problems you have to meet, others not only understand, but have found a solution. Whatever road you have traveled, others have traveled before you, so there is no need to travel alone.
