PWS Awareness Month TIP of the Day: Create a Calm Space
Children and adults with Prader-Willi syndrome can easily become overstimulated and overwhelmed over everyday things. Create a space where they can go when the environment is simply too much for them. This doesn’t have to be a whole room; it can simply be a separate space in an existing room.
