In brief: Nothing specific

As far as I am aware there is no specific rx for anglemans s.
Good eval will reveal what symptoms or problems are present and adequate support and guidance, finding optimal educational support, treating sx that cause distress. Appropriate expectations for child's abilities-really no different from any other challenged child. Full eval and comprehensive intervention.

In brief: Yes!

Angelman's syndrome is a genetic disorder. Children with this condition need to start supportive therapies early to help with language and other delays.
It is also important for parents of a child with this condition to meet with a genetic counselor to determine the risk of having another child with the same condition.
