Challenging Behaviours in Fragile X Syndrome: Investigating Environmental and Physiological Influenc

Challenging behaviours, such as self-injurious behaviour and aggression, are a significant concern for some people with Fragile X Syndrome, and those who support them. In this talk, Becky Hardiman gives an overview of a series of literature reviews and studies which aimed to better understand these behaviours and their causes. Specifically, the aim of the studies was to investigate possible characteristics (such as stress-related arousal) associated with Fragile X, which may influence the development of challenging behaviours. You can view the talk as a video via University of Kent's Player or as a 'podcast' (audio over slides) on YouTube.

If you have any questions about the research or want more information, you can contact Becky via email:
