Angelman Syndrome: Making the Diagnosis
Angleman syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that occurs in about 1 in 15,000 to 1 in 30,000 births. It has historically been a long and difficult process for many families to obtain a correct diagnosis; but early diagnosis is not only desirable, it is critical if the best treatment is to be obtained, including appropriate therapies and successful medications for seizures. Two documentaries and four diagnostic clips - video footage of over 40 individuals with AS - to help both pediatricians and families better understand the diagnostic characteristics of AS.

DVD includes:

An Overview of Angelman Syndrome Narrated by Charles Williams, MD Running Time: 40 minutes

Diagnosing Angelman Syndrome Narrated by Jill Clayton-Smith, MD Running time: 26 minutes

Dr. Jill Clayton-Smith, an expert in the treatment and diagnosis of Angelman syndrome in the United Kingdom, explains how to make a diagnosis of AS. A clinic appointment with Lauren, a 22 month old girl with a clinical diagnosis of AS, demonstrates Dr. Clayton-Smith's points.
