Is there a cure for Angelman syndrome?

Not at the moment, but researchers are working on it. See: research and news


Some symptoms can be treated. The condition is permanent but is not degenerative. Angelman syndrome children can look forward to a normal lifespan. Studies have identified an Angelman syndrome gene on chromosome 15. Research is continuing worldwide on the complex genetics of Angelman syndrome to better understand why it occurs. Males and females are affected equally.


When children with Angelman syndrome are observed and studied, many educational and behavioural interventions have been shown to be effective in the areas of communication, behaviour modification, sleep disturbance, general conduct and social skilling.


Physical and occupational therapies, speech and language intervention assist Angelman syndrome children.
