We have compiled some resources that you may find useful. The links the left will take you to info about clinics in the Northwest and other Rett Syndrome websites. If you know of a resource that you feel should be listed here, please contact us.

For 20 years, we have relentlessly pursued advanced and comprehensive research to transform the lives of all those affected by Rett syndrome. We are focused on delivering treatments and ultimately a cure for Rett syndrome while empowering families with the resources, connections and encouragement they need to thrive.

Ontario Rett Syndrome Foundation

The Ontario Rett Syndrome Association (O.R.S.A.) exists to ensure that children and adults with Rett Syndrome are enabled to achieve their full potential and enjoy the highest quality of life within their community.

Rett Syndrome Research Trust

The Rett Syndrome Research Trust (RSRT) was launched in 2008 with a singular goal: to drive the development of treatments and cures for Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders. As one of the few neurological disorders to demonstrate dramatic symptom reversal in the lab, Rett Syndrome has captured the attention of the world’s premiere university and pharmaceutical industry scientists. RSRT is operating at the nexus of this activity, leading and advancing the research agenda.

By funding the most Rett research worldwide, $58 million since 2008, we strive to put ourselves out of business as soon as possible.

“Almost every one of the resources on this page was written by parents of children with special physical, developmental, or behavioral health needs.  There is a lot of wisdom here, but remember that you must always do your own research.  What worked for someone else may not work for you.”
