Welcome to the home of Team Rett!

What is Rett Syndrome?

Rett Syndrome is a unique developmental disorder caused by mutations on the X chromosome on a gene called MECP2, which occurs in about one in 10,000 children. It is even rarer in boys. The course of Rett syndrome, including the age of onset and severity, varies from child to child. As the syndrome progresses, most children lose purposeful use of their hands and the ability to speak. Other symptoms may include loss of motor skills, the onset of breathing and cardiac irregularities, seizures, digestive problems, scoliosis, and tremors.
