RETTGIRL.ORG 

We created the RettGirl.org website in 2008 as a hub for all things Rett. We wanted a place for parents, caregivers, teachers, therapists and medical professionals to be able to find, share and recommend what is working for them -- and who is helping them the most. Rather than scouring through long threads of social media conversation to find information, use the SEARCH feature on RettGirl.org to find what you need:

RETT WE CAN VIDEO CHANNEL - a YouTube channel dedicated to Rett Girls taking on big challenges and showing off what they CAN do!

In February 2013, our two-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Girl Power 2 Cure (GP2C), their staff, members, and supporters, have become a beacon of light for me and my family. They bring an air of excitement, youthfulness, and fun to a very serious diagnosis.
