Fragile X Conference in Stirling
When? Saturday 21st May 2016
Where? Stirling Court Hotel, University of Stirling, Scotland
We are really excited about this year’s conference in Stirling. Through the day we will be focussing on some of the key practical issues facing children and adults with Fragile X, including education and employment. The day will include 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 is also a great opportunity to meet with others living with or interested in Fragile X. We hope to see lots of you there!
