Latham Centers is internationally renowned for our expertise and success in working with individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS).
PWS is a life-threatening genetic disorder that manifests with insatiable appetite, mild to moderate developmental delays, and emotional and behavioral problems. The syndrome occurs in approximately 1 in 18,000 births and is found in all races and ethnic groups. There is no known cure for PWS.
Latham Centers’ environment is food-safe, and our staff members are dedicated, talented, and highly trained. Our unique programs encompass a children’s campus, a transitional home, eleven adult group residences, and supported community living options.
