Overview

Understanding Rett Syndrome offers a concise, evidence-based introduction to Rett Syndrome (RTT), covering a range of topics from diagnosis and causes to treatment and family management. It focuses on improving the quality of life for those with the syndrome by suggesting practical ways of managing the condition at home and at school, offering support and guidance to all parents and caregivers learning how to help children with RTT. Over the course of six chapters, Fabio, Capri and, Martino explore signs and symptoms of RTT, along with an overview of treatment, therapy, and interventions for those living with the condition, focusing on technological aids such as eye-tracking and ICT and new neural techniques.
