If you have been told or suspect that your child has Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS), you have come to the right place. We are one of the country’s leading programs for the care of children with RTS. We provide expert confirmation of diagnosis as well as the latest treatments and support.
Every Child is Unique
RTS is different for each child. While all children with RTS experience developmental delays and many have medical problems, these vary greatly with each child. There is no one approach that works for every child.
Our program is located in the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
What We Offer
Our services and support include:
