Delineating Repetitive Behavior Profiles Across the Lifespan in Fragile X Syndrome

Behavioral Issues in FXS+ASD
While parents may be well aware of the differences between FXS, ASD, and FXS+ASD, teachers, clinicians, and other professionals, need to understand that FXS+ASD isn’t merely a sum of its parts.
