From the Clinic to the Classroom (SCRANTON): Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited cause of developmental disabilities, affecting males and females of all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Students with fragile X syndrome may show a wide range of symptoms, including physical differences, as well as learning and / or behavioral issues, such as autism, attention deficits, and anxiety. Join ADMI’s expert staff, Brenda Finucane, MS, LGC and Barbara Haas-Givler, MEd, BCBA, for an in-depth look at the syndrome, its implications in the school setting, and practical strategies to address learning and behavioral symptoms.
