WHAT IS RETT SYNDROME?
Rett syndrome is a genetic neurological disorder that almost exclusively affects female brain development. Male cases of Rett syndrome are very rare.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NIH), Rett syndrome “is characterized by normal early growth and development followed by a slowing of development, loss of purposeful use of the hands, distinctive hand movements, slowed brain and head growth, problems with walking, seizures, and intellectual disability.”
