Angelman Syndrome: Implications for Physical Education and Other Movement Settings

Rebecca S. Gohs

Abstract


The primary purpose of this review of the literature is to improve the support given to those with Angelman syndrome in physical education and other movement settings. The additional purpose is to call attention to a rare neurodevelopment disorder that people are often unfamiliar with, by introducing you to some children with Angelman syndrome, explaining the genetic mechanisms in layman terms, and addressing concerns when learners with complex disabilities are included in physical education and other movement settings.
