TapToTalk AAC for Rett Syndrome

Children with the nervous system disorder known as Rett syndrome, almost always girls, have delayed or curtailed growth and development, accompanied in most cases by expressive language disorder. Seizures, gastrointestinal disorders and repetitive motions are common symptoms. Rett is often confused with Angelman syndrome and cerebral palsy. There is some controversy as to whether or not Rett syndrome should be considered a part of the autism spectrum.

Children with Rett syndrome have the same need (and right) to communicate as do all other kids. We have heard from many parents of children with Rett syndrome that they have had great success using TapToTalk as their AAC solution. Most tell us TapToTalk was recommended by other parents. TapToTalk provides portable, customizable, socially acceptable and affordable AAC for children with expressive language problems. We are proud to be able to help them help their kids communicate.

Here are some resources for families dealing with Rett syndrome:

International Rett Syndrome Foundation
Rett Syndrome Research Trust
