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.
I am a special education teacher and autism teaching and learning coach, working in mainstream and special education settings in the Hume Region in Victoria Australia.
I am passionate about providing all children with the opportunity to lead enviable lives.
My goal is to share what ever I know about evidence based, best practice strategies and resources that promote positive and inclusive school environments.
I'd really like to read your thoughts too so feel free to leave a comment when you visit.
