– A Guide for Teachers
Fragile X Syndrome is thought to be the most common inherited cause of learning difficulties. However many people have never heard of it and those who have, including many of the professionals who work with those affected by it, have little knowledge or understanding of the condition. This book brings up-to-date research with information and advice from teachers who are discovering, first hand, the best ways of educating children with Fragile X. It is much-needed support and advice that will help teachers to understand the child with Fragile X and encourage maximum educational progress.
While the book is aimed at teachers, it is also an excellent resource for parents, therapists and any professional working with a child who has Fragile X.
