Fragile X experts, Mouse and Tracy, will be sharing their expertise with families and professionals to help attendees better support individuals with Fragile X syndrome. This will be a unique opportunity to soak up their years of experience and walk away with tools and strategies you can immediately implement and make an improvement in the life of your client, student, patient or loved one with Fragile X.
The focus of the event will be on ways to help manage anxiety and hyperarousal in individuals with Fragile X across all environments. This two day event will build the participant’s knowledge and understanding of hyperarousal and the strategies Mouse and Tracy use, as well as applying them. While it is most beneficial to attend both days, if circumstances do not allow attendance both days, please register for one.
Friday’s session will focus on understanding Fragile X Syndrome, include an introduction to the phenotypical learning style and go more in-depth into understanding hyperarousal and anxiety in Fragile X Syndrome. This will be followed by learning about strategies for use in the home, school, and work settings.
Saturday’s session will focus on the FxMax, a helpful planning tool for school, work and home. This session will include a breakout session where participants will work through the FxMax in small groups.
