It is important for those with PWS to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives and increasing physical activity in this population is an area of high interest. This study involves a 24-week home-based physical activity suitable for children and adolescents ages 8-15 with PWS as well as obese children without PWS ages 8-11 years. Researcher will study whether this home based program improves physical activity, motor proficiency, central sensory reception and integration, body composition, and quality of life.
