Prader Willi Syndrome Singapore Support Group

Generally, a young child with Prader Willi Syndrome (PWS) who is not obese looks normal, so family and friends often do not understand either the need for food security or the parents' grieving. The best source of support is other parents going through similar circumstances. Thus, support groups are very important especially for parents of children who are newly diagnosed with PWS.

 

Some parents of children with PWS have formed a support group to help other parents and children.

 

For more information on this support group, please contact A/Prof Denise Goh at paev15@nus.edu.sg.
