Pacific Northwest Angelman Syndrome Foundation


When a child is first diagnosed with AS, it is natural to be overwhelmed with the news. You are not only interested in acquiring specific information about AS, but also may need emotional support to help you through the difficult feelings that come after the diagnosis. This adjustment period may last a number of years. Various events and family situations throughout the life of your AS child can also create a need for emotional support.


Sometimes it is helpful to discuss your thoughts and feelings with others that have had the same experiences. We have a number of parents within our group, with AS children of varying ages and abilities, who are willing to be contacted by other AS families. If you would like a family in your region to contact you then please fill out the form below. Otherwise, please feel free to reach out to one of the families listed at the bottom of this page.
