Telehealth Study on Early Development in Angelman Syndrome at Purdue University

The Purdue University Neurodevelopmental Family Lab is recruiting families of children with Angelman syndrome under 5 years old. 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. 

Study activities are completed from home, and participation may involve completing web- and phone-based surveys, telehealth-based play sessions, and recording your child’s vocalizations.  

Compensation is provided for all studies.
