Video: Diagnosis: A parent’s perspective

July 21st, 2017

At a very early stage Mike and Helen Tozer could see the challenges with their son Josiah’s development – across the board Josiah was missing milestones. They were very concerned to understand the cause of the delay.

It took time and a great deal of parental persistence before testing for Fragile X was done, and a diagnosis of Fragile X syndrome was finally made.

In this 3-minute  Mike’s message to healthcare professionals and GPs when faced with a young child with developmental delay is twofold. Firstly, to strongly consider FX testing early in the process. And secondly to get a real understanding of a family’s history of any conditions related to Fragile X.

Many thanks to for producing this video for Fragile X Association of Australia.
