Rett Syndrome Conference Tips


I am excited to be meeting many of you for the first time this weekend in Virginia at the IRSF conference! This will be my fourth conference and my favorite part is getting to spend time with other Rett families!

If you are not able to make it, touch base with someone who has, or send me an email. There are usually audio copies of each session available for sale.

Just a few quick tips:
1. Print out slips of paper with your contact info on it to pass out.... you will be amazed at how many times you will be asked to write down your email for people you meet! Include at least your name and email plus your daughter's name and age.

2. When someone gives you THEIR info, jot down some info next to it. Like, "sat with at lunch on Sat" or "the one who has is doing horse therapy" etc... you think you won't foget, but with all the new info coming at you all weekend, you will be overwhelmed when you get home!

3. Pack a sweater!!! Of course now that I say it, it won't be true, but every year people are frrrreeeezing in some of the conference rooms.

Whatever your plans, have a great Memorial Day weekend!
