Introduction to Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic condition that affects the development of a person’s brain, leading to a range of intellectual and behavioral challenges. It is the most common inherited cause of intellectual disability and autism. This condition occurs due to a mutation in the FMR1 gene located on the X chromosome. The X chromosome carries genetic information that determines the development and functioning of various aspects of the body. Individuals with Fragile X Syndrome may experience delays in language development, learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, and social and emotional difficulties. It is important to understand this condition in order to provide appropriate support and interventions for affected individuals.
