What is Rett Syndrome?

Rett Syndrome is a rare and complex neurological disorder that mostly affects girls, though it can occasionally be found in boys. Although it is present from birth, the signs of Rett Syndrome often don’t become noticeable until around a child's first birthday. At this time, children might start to lose skills they’ve learned, such as speaking or using their hands, and can become more withdrawn. This condition is caused by a mutation in a gene called MECP2, which is located on the X chromosome. This genetic change happens randomly and is usually not inherited from parents. The mutation prevents nerve cells in the brain from functioning correctly, leading to significant challenges in physical movement and communication. Children with Rett Syndrome require ongoing support for their daily activities throughout their lives. Despite these challenges, with the right care and support, they can continue to learn and engage with the world around them. Rett Syndrome was first identified in 1966 by Dr. Andreas Rett, an Austrian doctor. It can affect any family, occurring in about 1 in every 10,000 girls born each year.

What Is Rett Syndrome

Helping learners with motor skills development.

Children with Rett Syndrome often face challenges with motor skills, including coordination, balance, and fine motor control. HelpKidzLearn software provides a wide range of activities specifically designed to support the development of these skills in an enjoyable and interactive way. One key aspect of motor skills development addressed by HelpKidzLearn activities is hand-eye coordination. Children can engage in activities that involve reaching and touching the screen to create various effects, helping them to support their coordination skills. For example, activities like "Press and Let Go" within the Games and Activities section offer simple cause-and-effect interactions, such as those found in Vibrant Tunnels along with Exploration activities. Young learners with Rett Syndrome can create their own music by touching colours on the screen and listening to the corresponding sounds. By participating in these engaging activities, children with Rett Syndrome can engage and explore these creative activities in a supportive environment provided by HelpKidzLearn.

Helping Learners With Motor Skills

Engaging activities for children with Rett Syndrome.

HelpKidzLearn software provides engaging and interactive content that captures the attention of children with Rett Syndrome, making learning and play both enjoyable and effective. The vibrant graphics, fun animations, and captivating sound effects are designed to keep children interested and motivated. Each activity is carefully crafted to be visually appealing and stimulating, encouraging children to interact with the software and participate in the learning process. The interactive nature of the software allows children to see immediate results from their actions. For example, when children touch the screen or use adaptive devices to interact with the software, they can trigger animations, sounds, or changes on the screen. This immediate feedback helps to maintain a child's interest and makes learning feel like a game. Activities such as "Five Girls in the Ring" encourage engagement, independence, and movement with its catchy song and entertaining elements. Similarly, in sequential learning activities like "Wind Day," children can experience anticipation and excitement as they wonder if the balloon will blow away.

Engaging Activities

Personalised learning and communication through ChooseIt Maker.

HelpKidzLearn allows for personalised learning experiences, catering to the unique needs and abilities of each child with Rett Syndrome. Activities can be adapted to suit individual preferences and abilities, ensuring that each child can engage in a way that is most effective for them. With tools like ChooseIt Maker, teachers and parents can create customised activities that target specific learning goals and interests. This flexibility extends to communication as well, with the ability to create simple communication boards. ChooseIt Maker includes a bank of symbols that promote communication skills (AAC), helping children with Rett Syndrome to express themselves effectively. These pages can be printed and laminated for everyday use or accessed directly on an iPad through the free ChooseIt Maker Player App, providing an accessible and portable communication tool.

Promoting social interaction through Inclusive Stories.

HelpKidzLearn promotes social interaction by offering games and activities that encourage turn-taking, cooperation, and communication with peers. Through Inclusive Stories and sensory resources, children with Rett Syndrome can engage with others and participate in shared experiences. These activities improve social skills development in a supportive and inclusive environment. Overall, HelpKidzLearn software provides opportunities for children with Rett Syndrome to interact with their peers and build important social skills while having fun and learning.

Promoting Social Through Inclusive Stories

Supporting children with Rett Syndrome through Insight.

For some children with Rett Syndrome who experience mobility challenges, eye-gaze technology can be a source of valuable support. By using HelpKidzLearn Insight software with eye-gaze, we can gain a deeper understanding of our young learners. This technology allows children with limited mobility to interact with the software and participate in meaningful activities, offering insights into their preferences, abilities, and progress. With features such as data tracking, personalised learning experiences, and goal setting, Insight software enables educators and therapists to create tailored interventions and support strategies. This personalised approach helps meet the unique needs of children with Rett Syndrome, enhancing their development and enriching their quality of life.

Supporting Children Insight

Accessibility is central to our mission.

We understand the challenges children with Rett Syndrome may face, which is why our software is designed to be accessible through various means such as touch, switch access, and eye gaze. These options are crucial for children who may experience difficulties with motor skills or fatigue. By providing multiple access methods, we ensure that all children can engage with our activities, regardless of their physical abilities.

Accessibility Is Central

Tracking progress, celebrating success.

We understand that witnessing regressions in children, especially due to conditions like Rett syndrome, can be challenging. However, at HelpKidzLearn, we believe in celebrating every milestone along the way! Our software such as Insight, ChooseIt Maker and Readymades, are designed to help you track and monitor a child's progress over time. This data not only allows for setting goals but also enables further personalisation of activities, creating a truly individualised learning experience. Keep an eye out for our new analytic tools, which will provide even more detailed feedback on all our HelpKidzLearn software. At HelpKidzLearn, we believe in providing every child, including those with Rett syndrome, with the opportunity to explore, learn, and grow. Through our accessible and engaging software, we aim to support children in opening their world, one step at a time.
