Understanding Fragile X - Information and Resources for Parents and Teachers

Hi Everyone,

I have spent quite some time this morning exploring the National Fragile X Foundation (USA) website. The site is full of terrific resources to support the understandings of educational and allied medical professionals and a wonderful resource for parents, navigating a new diagnosis, to find evidence based, up to date information about the syndrome.

I highly recommend watching the 26 minute video Understanding Fragile X which explains very simply what Fragile X is, as well as the educational approaches most successful in working with this group of learners.
