Sleep disorders and Fragile X – webinar 18th May

May 5th, 2023

Sleep disturbance is common in children who have a neuro-disability, such as Fragile X syndrome.  Sleep problems are the #1 issue for many parents of young children with Fragile X.

Dr Helen (Honey) Heussler is a developmental paediatrician who specialises in sleep disorders and she is an expert in Fragile X syndrome, and is based at the Queensland Children’s Hospital.   She will join us live on Thursday 18th May at 8:00pm AEST to talk about what causes the sleep problems and to outline strategies parents/carers can use to manage sleep hygiene and behaviours.

Dr Heussler is keen to take questions in advance, so that we can be sure to cover what people most want to hear.  Email us at OR use our CONTACT US form  .
