NICHOLAS KAHRILAS:An Introduction to theWilliams SyndromeAssociation
About the Williams Syndrome Association• Formed in 1982, the Williams Syndrome Association (WSA) was created to support families that include someone with Williams syndrome. A non-profit organization headquartered in Troy, Michigan, the WSA’s mission is to provide information and emotional support to people living with Williams syndrome. The group is dedicated to building community programs and services and increasing the publics understanding about the disorder.
Services Offered by the WSA• The WSA is here to help. It does not matter at what stage a friend or family member with Williams syndrome is. The group offers resources and support to guide individuals from diagnosis to treatment through adulthood, and provides the latest medical information, which is meant to help individuals through everyday life.
Volunteers and the WSA• Volunteers for the WSA community furnish day-to-day support to people with Williams syndrome and their families. Most volunteers have a relative or loved one with the condition, so they know firsthand the challenges involved in caring for such individuals. Because the community is relatively small and widely dispersed, the WSA encourages the development of local chapters.
