The clinics listed here have distinguished themselves as hospitals and clinicians who understand the diagnostic criteria of Rett syndrome and related disorders, and are dedicated to identifying the various needs of those diagnosed with Rett syndrome. Their goal is to provide excellent medical care and consultation, improve quality of life, and advance clinical research in order to change the natural history of our children.

Most of your child’s care will come from local providers who may not be as familiar with Rett syndrome, so visiting a specialty clinic will benefit your child and provide a source of experts for the local care provider to consult with if complex issues arise.

Please contact the clinic directly to schedule an appointment and discuss payment options and insurance coverage.

The Rett Consortium logo indicates a site that is participating in the NIH Natural History Study, in partnership with and other related advocacy groups. We highly encourage families to enroll to help with research towards finding a cure.
