Disability Profile - Rett Syndrome

 

Rett Syndrome, with Assitive Technology devices and solutions from Tobii communication can be helped.

Named after the Austrian physician that discovered it, Rett Syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder that almost exclusively affects girls and has a profound effect on their ability to communicate. With Assistive Technology devices and solutions from Tobii communication can be helped.

Though there is still a lot of research left to be done, nearly all cases of Rett Syndrome are caused by a defective gene.

Scientists generally agree that the syndrome has four stages, with the major damage to communications capability occurring in stage two. As the stage progresses, spoken language and movement are affected, leading to difficulties communicating.

Users with Rett Syndrome have found Tobii’s ability to combine communications modules with eye-tracking technology very useful when learning language and communications skills all over again. Tobii’s advanced eye-tracking capabilities are simple to calibrate and can deal with any involuntary head movements that could otherwise affect performance. With Assistive Technology devices and solutions from Tobii communication can be helped.

As the user’s skill grow, their Tobii solution can grow and adapt with them, giving them a way of communicating with the world around them via the internet, social networks and text messaging, and allowing them to maximize their opportunities both socially and in education.
