LADDER Family-Friendly Reports

August 16, 2023

LADDER has some new family-friendly resources that you can view on the LADDER website!

In May, LADDER launched a social media campaign with the goal to increase the number of adults enrolled in LADDER and highlight experiences of caregivers, researchers, and clinicians of adults. We believe by including more adults in LADDER, researchers can better support affected individuals and their families. 

LADDER also 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 currently have three reports available for families!

To read the report on the adult social media campaign or any of the currently available family-friendly reports, check out the “Family-friendly Reports and Campaigns” page on the LADDER website: https://laddertotreatment.org/for-families/family-friendly-reports-campaigns/

LADDER is a research network focused on Angelman and dup15q syndromes. LADDER links data from research studies, registries, and clinic visits. If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at ladder@rti.org or toll free at 1-888-454-2588.

Sincerely,

The LADDER team
