Latham Centers' Prader-Willi syndrome consultation team provides customized consultation services tailored to the specific challenges 和 needs of children 和 adults with PWS. Our consultation initiatives serve to equip the larger PWS community with best practices.
Consultation services are provided to day program, group home, school, 和 home environments. In order to best prepare for the consult, the Latham Centers team schedules an initial discussion of the current situation 和 goals for the consult. The team requests current materials 和 documents pertaining to the individual. The consult team also requires an approved invoice from the payor source. The Latham Centers team plans their own travel 和 accommodations (reimbursable upon receipt of invoice).
