What is Fragile X Syndrome?

Genetic Condition

Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic condition that causes intellectual disability, behavioral and learning challenges, and various physical characteristics. Though Fragile X Syndrome occurs in both genders, males are more frequently affected than females, and generally with greater severity. Life expectancy is not affected in people with Fragile X Syndrome because there are usually no life-threatening health concerns associated with the condition.


While there is currently no cure for Fragile X Syndrome, there are many areas of treatment and intervention that can improve the lives of affected individuals and their families. Given the proper education, therapy, and support, all persons with Fragile X Syndrome can make progress.
