o  Daily living skills
o  Understanding anxiety in Fragile X
o  The Fragile X learning style
o  Fragile X and girls

Dr Jonathan Cohen, medical director of the Fragile X Alliance Clinic in Melbourne will provide an overview of the latest in medications.

The seminars will be ideal for:
o  Families
o  Educators, health professionals and everyone who has an interest in supporting a child or young person who has Fragile X syndrome.
