Tip of the Week: Pen Pal Program

Latham Centers is thrilled to introduce our international pen pal program. Many of our students come to us without ever having an appropriate peer group, but once they arrive, they start making friends almost immediately. Our students often report that prior to coming to Latham, they felt isolated and different from other children. Several of our students with Prader-Willi syndrome would like to reach out to other kids with PWS from around the world—so they will also feel a part of the community.

If your child would like to be a pen pal with a student from Latham, please email me with their name, age, and address at pcarroll@lathamcenters.org.



Patrice Carroll is Latham Centers’ world-renowned Prader-Willi Syndrome specialist. She works with Latham Centers’ residents with PWS, their families and consultants, continuously learning and teaching about PWS best practices.
