Prader-Willi Syndrome: Adulthood 101
With a presentation by Elizabeth Roof, M.A., on Monday, February 22, 2016, at 7:30 p.m., EST. If you were unable to attend the 2015 conference, or missed this presentation while there, you will be glad to hear it now. In Prader Willi Syndrome: Adulthood 101, Ms. Roof will present on supports that seem to make things better as people with PWS get older, subtype differences, what to be on the watch for, and what you shouldn’t waste time doing! She will give some case studies about different psychiatric issues in aging adults and what helps. She will talk about how best to identify factors that make interventions more positive, give examples about different living/vocational situations and how/when they work best. Lastly, she will let parents know about taking care of your own emotional and physical health, balance, and how to go the distance.
