Adulthood and Fragile X Syndrome
Challenges faced by adults with Fragile X syndrome — and their caregivers — may include cognitive, learning, communication, and physical and medical issues. Difficulties in adulthood often begin with the transition from adolescence into adulthood and continue throughout their lives. As they age, common issues families face include housing, employment, and transportation. However, with support and intervention strategies, adults with Fragile X syndrome can lead fulfilling and meaningful lives.
