Rett Syndrome Program

The Rett Syndrome Program at CDRC is focused on a neurodevelopmenal disorder that affects girls almost exclusively. CDRC can help you diagnose and treat your child if they are positively identified as having Rett Syndrome.

Children with Rett syndrome appear to develop normally until 6 to 18 months of age, when they enter a period of regression, losing speech and motor skills. Many patients develop repetitive hand movements, irregular breathing patterns, seizures and extreme motor control problems.
