About Our Group

Our Community Support Network (CSN) group was established in 1995 by Tammy and Andy Selinger, who are the parents of two adults, Jodi (1990) and Brian (1993), both affected by the full mutation of Fragile X. Throughout the years, our group maintained a presence in Connecticut by involvement in awareness activities, social events, fundraisers, emotional and educational support as well as state and federal advocacy. In the Fall of 2008 we hosted our First Annual Educational Conference. Many more events have followed.
