Do you have a child with fragile X syndrome or the fragile X premutation? We are currently recruiting fragile X families in Charlotte, NC and it’s surrounding areas to participate in our research studies! We are also recruiting women who are carriers of the fragile X premutation who do not have children.

The goal of our studies is to learn about behavioral and language profiles associated with fragile X and the fragile X premutation.

  • Participation generally takes about 3 hours.
  • Participants may be asked to complete some interviews and tasks that involve words, sentences, and puzzles, depending on the participant’s age and ability level.
  • Each participant is compensated for their time and travel.
  • We can schedule the assessment at a time that is convenient for you, including weekends.
