People with PWS and work

Most people with PWS are more than capable of work, whether voluntary or paid, and are just as keen as other people to contribute to their communities. So it may be surprising to learn that, to date, very few people with PWS have full time jobs. This is partly because of the complex nature of the syndrome and partly because trainers and employers are not always aware of the particular environmental boundaries that may need to be put in place for people with PWS. Without which, the person with PWS may well be "set up to fail" from the outset.
