Angelman Syndrome Ireland:

Angelman Syndrome Ireland, is a not for profit charity established in 2011 to provide support and information about this rare neuro-genetic disorder of chromosome 15 which results in severe developmental delay.

ASI is working with families, caregivers, service providers and medical professionals who care for, or provide support to, those living with Angelman Syndrome. Its aims are

  • To raise  awareness of and understanding of this condition in Ireland
  • To create a formal support network for families, caregivers and service providers throughout Ireland offering practical and emotional   support.
  • To promote and support research into Angelman Syndrome and treatment of its cognitive, motor and epileptic symptoms, and to keep interested parties informed of developments in clinical research at home and abroad.

Honouree Patron, President Michael D. Higgins, has been supporting the development of this new charity.


United Kingdom:

Angelman Syndrome Support Education & Research Trust (ASSERT)

We are a UK based charity whose primary aims are:

Support – supporting families and carers of people with Angelman Syndrome. Also providing support to professionals who meet AS individuals, even though they may meet very few individuals with Angelman Syndrome in their professional career.

Education – providing education and raising awareness of this rare neurological condition and the issues that surround it. As with many such conditions, Angelman Syndrome is not just about a simple diagnosis, but requires parents and carers to adapt as situations change and the individual grows older. We aim to provide information and advice for all ages, drawing on the vast knowledge of the trustees and our experts panel, some of whom are world renowned experts in Angelman Syndrome.

Research – assisting organisations and individuals in carrying out research into Angelman Syndrome and its many related areas. Much of this research has already provided great benefit to families and carers.
