Rett's Disorder

Children with this pervasive developmental disorder appear to develop normally at first, but their head growth slows, they lose social "engagement" and hand skills, and they develop stereotyped movements of the hands and poorly coordinated gait or trunk movements. There is also psychomotor retardation and impairment of language development.
