Educational Crisis

Frequently, children with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) face challenges in the school environment. Whether it is monitoring food, managing transitions, or identifying teachers and staff who can meet the unique needs of a child with PWS, ensuring an appropriate and effective learning environment can be a battle. If you have questions about Individual Education Plans or would like resources to share with your childís teachers to help them understand how to manage PWS in a classroom setting, please visit our Educatorís Page [Click here]. It is also a good page to recommend to any educator working with your child.

If you have tried everything you can think of and still are unable to work with the school to create a successful learning environment for your child then we consider that a crisis situation. Sometimes a crisis situation will take the form of a suspension or other disciplinary action. Other times it might simply be a situation where a teacher or school staff are unwilling to adjust their methods and practices to address the needs of a student with PWS. If either are the case, please contact us for individual support. If necessary, we can put you and your childís school in touch with one of our trained educational consultants who can work with you and your childís school to work towards a positive solution to the crisis.
