Over the weekend, NBC’s Dateline aired an hour-long special called “On The Brink” that featured children with special needs and the issue of aging out of school-based services.

In it, reporters followed several families with the difficulties they faced building a future for their children. The Fragile X community knows these issues all too well. Our websites have resources to help families living with Fragile X with the transition to adulthood. We’d like to highlight some of those resources here for you.

If you’ve got any more questions or concerns about the transition to adulthood, please contact Jayne Dixon Weber at We can help!
