Support and Supervision of Individuals with Prader-Willi Syndrome December 2015

All direct support professionals and clinicians involved in the support of individuals with PWS should be trained on PWS and the specific strategies to be implemented in the person’s care and support. Staff (including new, transferred, part-time, per diem) should not be assigned responsibility for the care or support of any individual(s) with PWS until it is assured that they have been trained and understand the individualized supports to be implemented. Also, staff should not be assigned to residences, day settings, or other programs where one or more persons with PWS are served until it is assured that they have been trained and understand the environmental strategies in place to support individuals with PWS.
