How is CDD treated?
Because of its genetic nature, there is no cure for CDD at this time. At Children’s Hospital Colorado, our treatments are designed to help alleviate your child’s symptoms and to create the best possible quality of life. We see people of all ages for CDD in our Rett Clinic.
Some treatment approaches include medications to address possible seizures, gastroesophageal reflux, sleep, movement problems, constipation and breathing problems.
Feeding problems may also occur, requiring some children to need supplemental food from a feeding tube. Scoliosis (a curved spine) may also require orthopedic interventions like braces or surgeries.
Physical, occupational and speech therapy is also used to address motor, communication, sleep and behavioral difficulties. Although no cure is available, these supportive treatments help most children adapt to the symptoms of CDD.
Why choose us for the treatment of CDD?
Our team has developed a wealth of experience and knowledge about CDD, and we’re recognized as national and international leaders in the field through our published research. We strive to develop and provide the most up-to-date care based on research and care guidelines. We participate in the latest clinical trials.
Our sub-specialty providers and therapists come together to evaluate and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your child’s specific needs. Because so many specialties are housed under the same roof at Children’s Colorado, we can provide all the care that children with Rett syndrome need.
