Females and Fragile X syndrome – Webinar/Q&A with Dr Marcia Braden, Saturday 19th February 2021, 9:30-10:30am AEDT

January 25th, 2022

Girls and women who have Fragile X syndrome are affected differently than boys who have Fragile X.  The strengths, challenges, and deficits which they often encounter are best supported with specific understanding and strategies.

Dr Marcia Braden PhD, licensed psychologist and internationally known for her work in Fragile X over many years, will discuss and answer questions in this webinar.
Dr Braden will highlight the impact of the anxiety associated with Fragile X syndrome and how it presents at different developmental levels. She will talk about learning deficits which can be a challenge for girls and women who have Fragile X syndrome and she’ll focus on strategies which will support successful learning and relationship development.

Dr Braden will join us live from Colorado.  You’re welcome to join us LIVE (register to receive the Zoom link) or to catchup LATER (no need to register)
