Course Description

Rett syndrome is one of the most frequent causes of mental disability in females, often characterized by a slowing of development, distinctive hand movements, slowed brain and head growth, problems with walking, seizures, and intellectual disability. With only supportive management due to the lack of a cure, novel agents are being studied to assess the safety and efficacy in patients with Rett syndrome. This course will highlight the clinical presentation, diagnostic criteria, and emerging treatments for Rett syndrome.

This activity is developed and presented by BRAINWeek, an educational platform providing live and digital continuing education on the most frequently diagnosed CNS conditions encountered in clinical practice.

This symposium is not sponsored, endorsed or accredited by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Acadia Pharmaceuticals Inc.

There is no fee for this educational activity.
