Logan is 10 years old and was diagnosed at 15 months old. It hasn’t been an easy road but with help from family, friends, and his teachers he has progressed and learned so much.
What is your favorite thing about him?
Logan is so lovable and has a laugh that can put a smile on anyone’s face.
If you could tell someone who doesn’t know anything about Fragile X one thing, what would it be?
To have patience and to stay calm even when you may be so frustrated with their behavior and actions.
What is your advice for newly diagnosed families?
Daily schedules and knowing what to expect helps children so much with anxiety and stress.
What do you want your community to know about Fragile X?
When I tell people my son has Fragile X they have no idea what it is. I think informing the community more about Fragile X, in general, is important. Someone that has Fragile X is very different than other more known disabilities.
