Video: Diagnosis: A parent’s perspective

WP_20170119_026_Mike_cropAt a very early stage Mike and Helen could see the challenges with Josiah’s development – across the board Josiah was missing milestones. They were very concerned to understand the cause of the delay. It took time and a great deal of parental persistence before testing for Fragile X was done, and a diagnosis made.
In this 3-minute video, Mike’s message to healthcare professionals and GPs when faced with a young child with developmental delay is twofold. Firstly, to strongly consider FX testing early in the process. And secondly to get a real understanding of a family’s history of any conditions related to Fragile X.
