Angels We Know:

The Angels we know have a rare neuro-genetic disorder that occurs on the maternal leg of the 15th chromosome in the form of a deletion, mutation, or defect in one specific gene. AS affects males, females and all racial/ethnic groups. The Angels we know exhibit a happy demeanor and yet they require lifelong care.

Signs of an Angel:

  • Absence of functional speech
  • Seizures
  • Severe developmental and intellectual delay
  • Movement and balance disorders
  • Sleep disorders
  • Variety of behavioral issues
  • Happy demeanor (smiling, laughing, hand flapping)
