Treatments for rett syndrome
Rett’s syndrome is a medical condition mostly affecting girls, and bears slight resemblance to autism. This nervous disorder leads to development reversals, such as loss of hand-eye coordination, ability to walk and even talking. Some of the symptoms develop within the first year of birth, while some appear quite late. Rett’s syndrome is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism. Although Rett’s syndrome has not yet found a cure, its treatment is possible to an extent.
For a child who is diagnosed with Rett’s syndrome, find a skilled therapist to seek proper guidance. There are many therapies available for reducing the effects of the disorder by targeting specific symptoms. By proper treatment, any further decline of abilities can be fought back, and ensure that the child maintains motor skills and effective communication ability. Special exercises, PT and physical therapy aids in maintain flexibility in muscles, and to prevent deformation of body parts. Occupational therapy makes them adept at daily activities like getting dressed, eating, drinking and brushing. It also helps gain control over both involuntary and voluntary hand movements. Speech therapy is used to train them to communicate effectively, often using non-verbal means for communication. Therapies are also aimed at relieving pain.
