Successfully Supporting People with Prader-Willi Syndrome

 Course Description:

This course provides practical information about best practices in supporting people with Prader-Willi Syndrome.  Based on the book, “Successfully Supporting People with Prader-Willi Syndrome: A Handbook for Professionals,” the primary focus is on people who work on a day-to-day basis with people with PWS. 


The Course includes overall strategies related to food, environmental modifications, and specific types of services across the lifespan.  Course content is supplemented with links to in-depth resources.  Quizzes and a certificate for completion make this an excellent tool for professional development.


While designed as an educational tool for staff in the developmental services field, the Course is also helpful for families, support workers, educators and anyone working with a person with PWS.
