Good Day RettGirls!
While building RettGirl.org we wanted it to to be The place to go for those of us living with Rett Syndrome.
Our first desire was to make it a place that families and caregivers could go to find anything they may need to make this journey easier. The lingering thought in the forefront of all of our minds was that we did not want anyone to ever have to go through what we did when our girls were diagnosed.
We searched the internet and books and never found anything in the same place or anything that helped us live with Rett Syndrome. You can live with it and we are determinded to make RettGirl the place to go to find anything you may need.
We have complied a list of helpful websites in many areas and we want to make sure that everyone knows what is out there to help you and your girls.
In our Resources section we have a useful links to other Rett Syndrome Organizations:
Rett Syndrome Research Trust
International Rett Syndrome Foundation
Israel Rett Syndrome Center
Rett Syndrome Association (UK)
Rett Syndrome Community Foundation (North Carolina)
Rett Syndrome Research Assistance (Ukraine)
We also have links to many General Disability Resources that no one seems to have handy. There are so many services provided by all these organizations. We encourage you to check them out!
