Description

The Alphabet Therapy Project of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center has trained therapists in 5 states who would love to work with your child. We have had some success teaching school-aged children with Angelman syndrome the alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes. Some children have continued to learn and can demonstrate mathematics, spelling, and sight reading. We do not guarantee that it will work for all children with Angelman syndrome, but there are some who have shown unexpected gains. Sessions are conducted on a fee-for-service basis, and parents are expected to participate.

We recently conducted a study of the Alphabet Therapy method, which was supported by the Angelman Syndrome Foundation. We are currently analyzing the data from that study.

Workshops on Alphabet Therapy are designed to introduce you, and your child's caregivers and teachers, to the method.

Workshops include live demonstrations of the method as well as some lecture and discussion.
