Newly Diagnosed

It can be an emotional time, and for some, a lonely time when families first learn of a Fragile X diagnosis. We want you to know that you are not alone, and we hope that we can help you deal with this. We are here to provide information, support and a listening ear. 


How having a diagnosis can help  
  • You can begin to understand how Fragile X impacts on yours, or your loved ones', lives and strategies that can best help with any challenges. 

  • By contacting the Society, you can find support and information.

  • By becoming members of the Society you will receive our Newsletter and information about all our Family Conferences.

  • It may be possible to secure financial benefits, get educational support, and access to specialist health services and social services.

  • Implications of the diagnosis on the wider family can begin to be considered and  discussed.

  • And let’s not forget all the great things about your child. Parents of children with Fragile X often describe their great sense of humour, their amazing memory and their sensitivity to the feelings of others.
