Genetics Evaluation and Counseling for Prader-Willi Syndrome
The provision of genetics evaluation and counseling services is one important aspect of comprehensive care for individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) and their families. This distinctive counseling service should be offered to parents of children who are known or suspected to have PWS. It is best provided by a medical geneticist in conjunction with a genetics nurse specialist or a genetics counselor.
