Fragile X syndrome is a genetic disorder. It is caused by changes in the FMR1 gene located on the X chromosome. The gene shuts down and stops the production of FMRP which is essential for brain development. The above infographic is curated from the Fragile X Society.
The infographic covers the understanding of the following:
- What is Fragile X Syndrome
- Importance of addressing anxiety
- Physical features in children with FXS

Maturation of sensory processing occurs slowly or not at all in Fragile X children. Incorporating a sensory diet as a part of the daily routine can help the child to get through the day in a more calm and organised state as well as increase attention and focus.
