UC Davis MIND InstituteWe are recruiting a small group of mothers and their children with Fragile X syndrome, between the ages of 10- and 17-years, to participate in a pilot study of a parent-implemented language intervention. The goal of this project is to teach each mother strategies which can be used to support spoken language development in their child with Fragile X syndrome.

The study will involve up to 2 visits to the UC Davis MIND Institute (located in Sacramento California) and approximately 12 weekly intervention sessions. The weekly intervention sessions will be conducted via distance video-teleconferencing using Skype.

Compensation for travel-related expenses will be provided in accordance with UC Davis policies. A laptop computer equipped with video-teleconferencing hardware and software will also be loaned to each family for the duration of the project.

The project is directed by Drs. Randi Hagerman and Leonard Abbeduto and has been approved by the UC Davis Institutional Review Board.
