Behavioral Aspects of Angelman Syndrome


This research project was one of the earliest extensive surveys of behavioral traits in AS and was funded and enabled by the Angelman Syndrome Foundation (ASF) because of ASF’s affiliation with so many families within and outside of the United States. Data from this questionnaire, and further follow-up studies by the investigator, subsequently led to several crucial papers. These publications showed that individuals with AS have abnormalities in sensory processing and therapeutic intervention was discussed.
