Symons' research featured by Minnesota Rett Syndrome Research Association

Frank SymonsThe research of Frank Symons, Educational Psychology professor, and his graduate students was featured on the web page of the Minnesota Rett Syndrome Research Association. Symons and his graduate students are working to build a collaborative partnership between the U of M, the Minnesota Rett Syndrome Research Association and Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare and Lifetime Clinics, to make a difference in the lives of girls and women with Rett Syndrome.

The research group hopes to address many of the behavioral and health issues that girls and women with Rett Syndrome live with. The studies to be conducted will help researchers examine issues related to pain, language and communication, challenging behaviors, and autonomic functioning.
