- Hello, my son has just been diagnosed with angelmans syndrome. I
have tons of questions about what quality of life my son can expect,
are there different severities to this disease. Where do we go from
here? Any help would be great.
- -Welcome to the Wonderful world of raising an Angel!!!
First, how old is your son? Early intervention works wonders. My
daughter, is 34 months and is doing beautifully.
There is a lot of good information on the web, I find some of it
dated though. My daughter's quality of life is great, she is in a
day school class with kids around her age, although she is the
oldest. She's sweet, loving, caring, funny and is in many ways just
like the other kids. There are different degrees to this syndrome
and I believe she is very high functioning.
What does tomorrow bring? I don't know. But I have learned and am
learning to take one day at a time, other wise I'd go crazy.
I'd be happy to answer any specific questions that you have.
Sue, Mom of Teagan, 34 months, Clinical diagnosis.
