Every other year, AS families, ASF members, researchers, healthcare professionals, educators, families, friends and other care providers get together for a four-day conference to learn and share with each other. Newly diagnosed families and first-time attendees are given special priority at these meetings, but many returning families come back year after year for the special camaraderie of being around others who understand.
With the successful implementation of a biennial conference, ASF has been able to intensify the quality and quantity of information available to families and professionals. ASF's conferences bring together leading authorities to make presentations on virtually every aspect of Angelman Syndrome. For some families this is the first chance for them to see another child like their own and learn about living with someone who has AS. This highly emotional experience is often overwhelming and richly fulfilling.
The next conference will be held in 2015. More details coming soon.
