A “cheat sheet” for PWS caregivers
For a greater chance of success, it is always a good idea for caregivers and teachers to have a cheat sheet — an easy-to-read reminder of how to best handle behaviors exhibited by individuals with PWS. Below is a chart that we like to use for reminders on how to approach the most common behaviors that caregivers may encounter. We hope you find it helpful!
