The Phoenix Children’s Hospital Fragile X Clinic is a member of the National Fragile X Foundation’s Fragile X Clinical & Research Consortium (FXCRC).

The Fragile X Clinic within the Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary clinic focused on the coordinated care and management of children with Fragile X syndrome. Patients are seen by a team of experts who specialize in the care of children with Fragile X syndrome to support the child’s primary care provider. 

The team is led by a developmental pediatrician in coordination with a nurse practitioner, Phoenix Children’s Genetics team, and a rehabilitation group. 

Each child seen in the Fragile X Clinic is evaluated by a developmental pediatrician or nurse practitioner. As part of our multidisciplinary clinic, patients are also evaluated by therapists with the rehabilitation team. Other referrals for additional specialists are made as needed.

Nicole Del Col, BSHCA, Program Coordinator 

Nicole Del Col unknowingly started working in healthcare about 20 years ago helping take care of her grandmother who had Alzheimer’s. After working for many years with the elderly she decided she needed to work with children. In 2011 she started that journey, working as a tech on the rehabilitation floor of Phoenix Children’s Hospital. She spent five years working in many different areas of the hospital.

In 2016 she started working in the Genetics Clinic at Phoenix Children’s, which is where she first learned about Fragile X syndrome. In 2019 she received her bachelor’s in healthcare administration and later began working for the neurology/ developmental pediatrics department at Phoenix Children’s as their specialty care coordinator for the autism and Fragile X clinic. 

In her free time, she enjoys baking (gluten-free baking as the store-bought stuff is not good) and traveling with her daughter.
