The organising committee welcome you to the first ever education event aimed at children and adults with Rett Syndrome. We are delighted to have attracted the internationally renowned lecturer and education practitioner, Susan Norwell as our inaugural keynote speaker. Susan works in every corner of the globe, both teaching students in SEN and working at the ground level with families, schools and therapists.
