parent panel and dietician expert Suzanne Geerts can help!

9th World Rett Syndrome Congress in Australia

Dates: 28th Sept to 1st Oct 2022

9th World Rett Syndrome Congress has been postponed due to COVID until 2022.

The QT Hotel, Gold Coast, which is located in Surfers Paradise, Queensland, will remain as the Congress venue.

Presenters
Presenters who originally accepted RSAA’s invitation to speak at the Congress are being notified of the latest postponement and will be reinvited. Hopefully, the revised dates will not affect their availability.
Congress website

Work continues on building the Congress website https://rettworldcongress.org to a point where it will meet the information needs of potential attendees. Online registration for the Congress is now open which may be of particular interest to Australian families who have included, or wish to include, coverage of the registration fees in their National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plans.
