child story



Daniel is 11 years old and has Angelman syndrome

His favourite animals are dogs

He enjoys playing with water, bubbles and balloons – especially when they burst

He has some pet fish

He laughs at slapstick comedy such as people falling over and clowns

Daniel’s family’s proudest moments are when other people laugh at Daniel’s laughter – it’s infectious

“Bottle up Angelman’s laughter as a medicine!”
