Family-friendly Reports and Campaigns

LADDER shares de-identified information (which means it cannot be traced back to you or your family) from the LADDER database with approved researchers. When research projects using LADDER data result in publications, we share summaries of the research that are written for families to understand. We also conduct campaigns to extend our outreach, highlight experiences of caregivers, researchers and clinicians, and find out more about the needs and priorities in the Angelman and dup15q communities.
