Support Resources



GeneReviews are a great resource to bring to your child’s clinicians. These publications provide a summary of current research on genetic conditions and information on ongoing care.

Gene changes in MAGEL2 can cause Prader-Willi phenotypes and autism (GeneReviews Linked here).

Check out the GeneReview for Prader-Willi Syndrome.


Research Article Summaries

We currently do not have any article summaries for MAGEL2, but we add resources to our website as they become available.

The information available about MAGEL2 is limited, and families and doctors share a critical need for more information. As we learn more from children who have this gene change, we expect our list of resources and information to grow.

You can also visit the Simons Foundation ’s SFARI Gene website to see information for researchers about this gene.
