Specialized Treatment Fund: funding assistance for specialized therapies, expert medical care, and neuropsychological evaluations provided by professionals who understand Williams syndrome. The WSA’s Specialized Treatment Fund will provide:

  • Travel and lodging assistance for specialized treatments and surgery: to help ensure that families can secure the best medical and surgical treatment for their child, regardless of location.
  • Specialized therapeutic evaluations for young children: to help ensure that families of children who need more support than what is offered by a local early intervention agency or school system will have the professional reports needed to secure those services.
  • Private psychological evaluations: specialized evaluations by professionals who will administer the testing needed to show the true cognitive profile of a student with WS can sometimes be the only way to get the attention of a resistant school system and ensure that they provide the “right” services for school-aged children with WS. These evaluations are costly and often financially out of reach for families.
  • Funeral expenses: when the unimaginable happens and a child with WS is lost, a family’s grief should not be compounded further by the financial burden of burial. WSA members are family and if WSA can help, just as every family does in the time of great need, we want to do so.
