RettGetAway – Postponed
Jun 18 @ 12:00 am – Jun 21 @ 12:00 am

RettGetAway: Postponed

After much consideration, our RettGetAway committee has decided to postpone the June 2020 RettGetAway in San Diego. The health of our children is of utmost concern. Once it is deemed safe and sound to convene large groups in public spaces again, we will evaluate a future Rett GetAway.

Many were working to create this ‘life without limits’ opportunity. A special thanks to the Kayla Mosca Foundation, Surfing Madonna, Surfin’ Fire, Merlin’s Magic Wand in association with Legoland San Diego, The Cassara Carlsbad by Hilton, our CA State Rep Sherri Brady, and ACADIA Pharmaceuticals.

We hope that all of our families and partners emerge from this situation whole, intact, and able to plan an even more extraordinary RettGetAway!

If you have made any travel bookings for the RettGetAway, we advise you to cancel them now while forgivable and with no penalty.

Rettsyndrome.org will be returning the group Legoland tickets awarded by Merlin’s Magic Wand so that a future award can be made again to either our group or to individuals who may choose to apply at another time (they only allow one Magical Day Out per family, one time)

We appreciate your understanding, and we hope that you all stay healthy and safe.
Please direct any questions to Paige Nues at pnues@rettsyndrome.org or Jennifer Mosca at info@thekaylamoscafoundation.org

RettEd: What Hurts? Understanding Pain and Rett Syndrome feat. Dr. Frank Symons
Aug 11 @ 1:00 pm

Please join us Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 1:00 pm Eastern Time (New York) with Dr. Frank Symons, Associate Dean for Research and Policy, Department of Psychology, and the Center for Neurobehavioral Development at the University of Minnesota as we discuss issues of pain in Rett syndrome.

Rett syndrome is a complex disorder, and sharing of accurate information is more than empowering, it can be life-saving for our children with Rett syndrome. So join this webinar to learn the facts. Even though the topic is difficult to talk about, we know you think about it. In terms of pain, Dr. Symons’ areas of specific research include (a) the reliable and valid assessment of pain in children and adults with significant communicative and motor impairments; (b) the relation between behavioral and biological variables as markers for altered pain; (c) modifying/adapting sensory testing; and (d) the relation between pain and problem behavior, specifically self-injury.

With this in mind, what’s on your mind? Register now and submit your questions and thoughts. Those submitted in advance will be addressed, and there will be plenty of time for write-in questions during the session.

Join us Tuesday, December 8th, at 1:00 pm (EDT) to hear from Dr. Tim Benke about Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) in Rett syndrome.

How do they process visual information?
