ConditionSigns/SymptomsFunctional Implications
Angelman Syndrome (happy puppet syndrome) Microencephaly, tremors/jerky gait, developmental delays, severe lang. impairment, very happy mood. Delayed: G/FM skills, walking skills, self-care skills. Sleep disorders, severe sensory processing problems. Behavioral problems: biting, hair pulling, stubbornness, screaming.
Prader-Willi Syndrome Hyperphasia, cognitive impairment, different behaviors, morbid obesity, low metabolism, hypotonia, dolicho Obsessed w/eating, G/FM delays, delayed development of self-help skills. Obesity or hypotonia=delayed walking.
Rett Syndrome (Girls only) Typical development from 6-18mos. Loss of skills/fx. use of hands @ 18mos, loss or severe impaired ability to speak. Constant "hand washing", wringing clapping, mouthing movements, shakiness of trunk/limbs.

Sleep disorders, emotional lability, poor self-esteem, poor frustration tolerance. slow reaction time,delayed motor speed,diff. in interpreting/responding to cues from others/environmen, slower response to reinforcement,rapid mood changes, poor emotional control/self monitoring (stop/look/listen). Diffuculty putting things in order.
