PWS Awareness Month (May 14) – Collections
May 14, 2022
Caption: Creating order from chaos can encourage someone with PWS to also organize their belongings. Before Halloween, Latham staff organizes lots of costumes, making it easier for our residents to choose their outfit.
It is not unusual for the person with Prader-Willi syndrome to collect items. Having a limit that is agreed upon can help keep their space organized. A picture of what their room should look like is often helpful as well and will help to avoid hoarding.
