Communication in Rett Syndrome Webinar Series
The Rett Syndrome Communication Guidelines were developed to provide therapists, educators, and families with information on assessment, intervention, and long-term management of communication to help individuals with Rett syndrome meet their full potential.
To assist professionals in implementing the Guidelines, IRSF has developed three one-hour webinars that provide introductory information on Rett syndrome, how features of Rett impact communication, and best practices in assessment and intervention. These webinars are free to speech-language pathologists and graduate students. An individual who takes all three courses can earn certificates for up to three Professional Development hours after completing a brief post-webinar exam for each course. These courses are designed to be taken in order (see below for links to each course).
Speech-language pathologists who complete all three courses will be invited to participate in a private, online forum hosted by IRSF and led by experts in the field that will provide ongoing mentorship, resources, and education about communication in Rett Syndrome.
To qualify for the forum, be sure to take and pass the corresponding quiz for each course. After passing all three quizzes, you will receive an email inviting you to join the private online forum for continuing professional mentorship.
