What is Prader-Willi Syndrome?

Prader-Willi Syndrome is a complex genetic condition that affects many parts of the body. Some characteristics of this condition include weak muscle tone, poor growth, and delayed development.

One of the most notable characteristics is the development of an insatiable appetite and chronic overeating. Individuals that are not supported by a proper diet will experience rapid weight gain leading to obesity.

People with Prader-Willi Syndrome typically are diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities and often have behavioral problems.

How can Chrysalis help?

Our team provides support for this Syndrome through specialized diet, exercise, recreation, supervision, education and behavioral support.
