Fragile X


FRAGILE X is a family of conditions caused by alterations (expansions) in the FMR1 gene on the X chromosome.   These conditions include Fragile X syndrome, which is the leading cause of inherited intellectual disability and the most common-known single gene cause of autism.    Around 90,000 people in Australia, children and adults, are impacted by Fragile X in some way.

Fragile X Association of Australia is a small national charity which serves as the peak body and support organisation for the Fragile X community across Australia.  
Our funding is from donations and fundraising.
