Fragile X syndrome is one of the main causes of child developmental delay and autism spectrum disorders. A premutated form of the same gene is also the basis for neurological disabilities in adults. This book breaks down the complex science of this genetic disorder and provides the facts and advice that every bewildered parent or professional needs to support individuals with Fragile X syndrome.

This is a straightforward introduction that clearly explains the condition on both a scientific and practical level. With sections on diagnosis, symptoms and treatment, as well as discussions of various emotional and behavioural considerations, this guide covers all aspects of Fragile X syndrome, its implications, and the possibilities open to families affected by it. It demonstrates how, with the right therapies, progress can be made and emphasises how music can be used effectively to promote communication, interaction, fine motor skills and responsiveness in children with the condition.

This is an essential reference tool for families of individuals with Fragile X syndrome, as well as therapists and healthcare professionals who are unfamiliar with the condition and are looking to find out more.

About the Author:

Isabel Fernández Carvajal is a Doctor of Medicine working on the genetic basis of intellectual disability at the Instituto de Biologia y Genetica Molecular (IBGM) at the University of Valladolid, Spain. She has a special interest in Fragile X Syndrome, autism spectrum disorders and other forms of intellectual disability with genetic origin. David Aldridge is co-director of the Nordoff-Robbins Zentrum, Witten, Germany.

Review:

Fernandez, a scientific advisor in the Spanish Fragile X Federation, and Aldridge, co director of the Nordoff-Robbins Zentrum, Witten, Germany, walk readers through the heredity aspects of Fragile X, its symptoms, diagnosing the syndrome, and appropriate interventions...Professionals may find more support here than parents, yet the lack of popular material on Fragile X means this is an important contribution. (Library Journal)
