Goal & target group
The main goal of this conference is to bring together a group of world-class scientists, researchers, clinicians, practitioners and stimulate multi-disciplinary international cooperation. We also aim to provide therapists, parents and caretakers with a toolbox that includes the latest information on treatment of symptoms.

Conference Programme
The conference outline with speakers and topics is now available.

For parents & family-members
We will make this a conference to remember, including social and networking activities that are aimed at collaboration and exploring ideas though multidisciplinary approaches. We emphasize that parents and/or caretakers of Rett syndrome girls and woman have the opportunity to meet the experts. A special track will be organised for parents, family-members and therapists. Facilities for taking care of Rett Syndrome patients are arranged, no day-care.
