The Purdue University Neurodevelopmental Family Lab is recruiting families of children with Angelman syndrome 18 months and under. This study aims to improve understanding of how children with Angelman syndrome develop in early childhood, and be able to predict and optimize outcomes for individual children. 

Participation involves completing online surveys, an audio recording of child’s vocalizations and a telehealth-based play session.

  • Child diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome must be 18 months old or younger
  • Family must live in the United States and speak English as primary language
