With the generous support of the St George Foundation and Genea – World Leaders in Fertility and the expertise of VIVA Communications, the Association has professionally produced a DVD titled Understanding Fragile X.
Running for just under 29 minutes it is a wonderful resource to help those affected, especially newly diagnosed families with young children, to understand the syndrome, its implications, what they can possibly expect in the future, and what help is available to them. It also informs and educates medical and education professionals on how best to facilitate the treatment of FXS and where to go for more information.
Thank you to those families who feature in the DVD and who share their stories and insights into life with Fragile X and to the medical and health professionals who provide valuable information and advice.
The DVD also includes a short 3D animation that provides a simple and consise representation of the genetics of Fragile X. To view both or either please click on the links below.
