If you have a son with fragile X syndrome between 3.00 and 12.99 years of age who has limited expressive language, you and your child are invited to participate in a research study being conducted by Dr. Angela Thurman at the MIND Institute University of California, Davis to learn more about how measures of expressive language and social communication can be used to measure change over time in communication skills, problem solving, and other behaviors in children with fragile X syndrome. In the future, it is possible that measures of expressive language and social communication may be useful as one of the ways to learn whether different treatments can help individuals with fragile X syndrome and other neurodevelopmental disorders to learn language more effectively.

If you decide that you and your son are interested in being in this study, we will ask you to visit the MIND Institute for two consecutive days. During your visits, your son will participate in some activities that will help us learn more about his problem-solving skills, language ability, nonverbal communication skills, attention, and other aspects of his development. We will also ask you to fill out some questionnaires and participate in an interview about your child's developmental history and current abilities.
