Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited cause of learning difficulties, affecting a child's ability to tackle key areas such as literacy and numeracy, and causing behaviour problems and social anxiety. This text provides support and information for teachers, for whom meeting the educational need of children with Fragile X presents demanding challenges. The book benefits from the expertise of an international field of researchers, whose variety of perspectives contribute to this multi-professional approach. Each chapter of the book suggests practical intervention strategies, based on sound educational principles expressed in accessible non-specific terms. A range of important topics are considered, including the physical and behavioural characteristics of Fragile X; the effects of Fragile X on learning; adults and women with Fragile X; medication and therapy; and related conditions such as autism and attention deficit disorders. As it breaks down the barriers of professional practice, this book establishes the groundwork for successful and valuable multi-professional teamwork. By providing immediate access to a body of empirical knowledge and advice from other disciplines, it will also encourage teachers to incorporate this approach into their own practice.
