CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Let us simplify what may otherwise seem complicated.
We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions.
Rett’s disorder is a neurological disorder caused by mutations of the X chromosome. It occurs almost exclusively in girls and causes difficulties in most activities of daily living. It makes eating, speaking, and walking; among many other things, difficult to do. Symptoms of Rett’s Syndrome are:
- Loss of speech
- Involuntary hand movements
- Loss of muscle tone
- Breathing difficulties
- Sleep disturbances
- Slowed rate of growth
Rett’s syndrome is usually noticeable within the first two years of life. There is no cure, but early diagnosis and treatment is the best way to address help individuals and their families who are affected. Treatment options include medical care, speech, physical, and behavioral therapy, and supportive services.
What We Don’t Treat
We are not an emergency clinic. We are an outpatient provider so we do not have inpatient facilities. We are not a hospital and do not provide detox services for addictions. We do not treat schizophrenia or brain disorders related to advancing age such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. We are not contracted with any court system and do not provide court ordered services related to child custody or other matters.
