About the Rett Syndrome Clinic

Rett syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects a child’s brain development and cognitive ability. Over time, it can cause severe problems with language and communication, lack of coordination and muscle control, involuntary hand movements, and slowed growth.

At the Rett Syndrome Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary care to address the multi-systemic medical needs of individuals with Rett syndrome and related neurodevelopmental disorders throughout their lifespan. Our clinic has been named both a clinical and research Center of Excellence.
