The teen years can bring much concern and anxiety for parents and caregivers. The good news is that Rett syndrome will not affect the normal pubertal development of your child. We could face many additional medical issues if she did not grow into a wonderful young woman, so we need to embrace and not fear these changes. Signs of puberty can appear prematurely in our children, as early as 7 or 8 years of age, but true puberty (including menstruation) generally occurs around the same time as her typical peers. Visit MedlinePlus or download the American Academy of Pediatrics online Patient Education pamphlet for general information about puberty. Below is some information specific to girls with Rett syndrome.
