Abstract

Eight mothers of eight young Rett syndrome girls were interviewed in respect of early symptoms in the child. A questionnaire originally developed to tap early symptoms in infantile autism was used. Considerable overlap between early symptoms in Rett syndrome and infantile autism was seen, although clear differentiating features might be present already in the first few years of life. Key words: Rett syndrome, autistic symptoms, infancy.
