AME Community Services, Inc. has been providing services to people with Prader-Willi Syndrome since 1992. Our agency provides services in neighborhood homes specifically designated for people with PWS. Each home has a maximum of four residents. We also provide in-home family support services for children with PWS.
AME Community Services, Inc. provides a highly structured plan, which involves prescribed diets and tailored exercise and weight management plans. AME provides a membership at a local health club for each home. Residents are rewarded for participation in the exercise program.
Our menus are developed and monitored by a dietician. Daily calorie amounts are monitored and revised on a regular basis. Access to food is restricted.
Behavior management plans are based on our strong commitment to positive programming. Reinforcement systems are in place for frequent recognition of appropriate behavior.
