This review analyzes the effectiveness of communication interventions for individuals with Rett syndrome. To meet inclusion criteria, studies had to examine the effects of providing communication intervention to at least one person with a diagnosis of Rett Syndrome. Communication intervention could include one or more therapeutic/teaching procedures intended to increase or improve the person’s communication skills or abilities. Nine studies met inclusion criteria and were included in the review following a methodological evaluation. 26 of the 31 study participants experienced positive outcomes. However, the review reports that eight out of the nine studies included in the review provided inconclusive certainty of evidence, and should be interpreted with extreme caution.
