Fragile X Family Conference

Thomley Centre, Buckinghamshire
23/24th September 2017

In this exciting collaboration with the University of Oxford we brought together researchers in the UK interested in Fragile X Syndrome research ,along with families, to investigate ways of working more closely in partnership to address key issues facing individuals and families living with Fragile X. 

Last year we focussed on the key topic of Fragile X Premutation carriers including: FXTAS, associated freatures and family planning. We covered these topics through a mixture of expert speakers, the latest research and family stories. Our conferences are always a great place to meet with others. Information about this years events will be coming soon!

Through the day we focussed on some of the key practical issues facing children and adults with Fragile X, including education and employment. The day included a mix of family stories, overviews of Fragile X and speakers talking about accessing services. As well as being a day full of useful information, it was also a great opportunity to meet with others living with or interested in Fragile X.
