  • To raise  awareness of and understanding of this condition in Ireland
  • To create a formal support network for families, caregivers and service providers throughout Ireland offering practical and emotional   support.
  • To promote and support research into Angelman Syndrome and treatment of its cognitive, motor and epileptic symptoms, and to keep interested parties informed of developments in clinical research at home and abroad.
