Fragile X

Fragile X Association of Australia Inc

Fragile X impacts around 100,000 Australians in some way. Fragile X syndome is a lifelong condition requiring early and ongoing intervention by health, medical and educational professionals to ensure people with Fragile X achieve their full potential. It is one of the conditions associated with changes to the Fragile X gene, others being FX-associated Primary Ovarian Insufficiency and FX-associated Tremor Ataxia syndrome, which can impact some carriers of Fragile X.

Your gift will help us continue to much-needed services & support to families affected by Fragile X, and to raise awareness of Fragile X conditions in the medical community.

Challenges

One of the most challenging issues faced by families affected by Fragile X is the lack of awareness of the syndrome at all levels: in the healthcare system, the education system and the community broadly. 
 
Widespread knowledge of Fragile X is key to early diagnosis,  early intervention, and ongoing treatment.

We're a non-profit member-based organisation and registered charity. We do not receive government funding, and rely entirely on subscriptions, donations, fundraising and grants to continue.

  • Help Line 5 days a week
