Abstract

The “Interactive School” project originated in a historicalmoment inwhich Italy and almost all countries in the world are experiencing and facing the fear of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) contagion. Many countries, including Italy, have imposed the closure of schools, universities, and all centers that host patients withRett Syndrome (RTT), a rare disease that heavily impacts on autonomy, mobility, and some cognitive and communication abilities of the affected subjects. As a consequence, we decided to launch a remotely operated, Interactive School program specifically oriented to Rett patients, and in this article, we briefly provide a report of the ongoing activity. The Interactive School project exploits an easy-to-use technological system designed to be as acceptable as possible for families with RTT patients. We are currently using this system with positive feedback from both families and patients. This is encouraging and confirms the design and realization choices.
