PANDABox, Parent Administered Neurodevelopmental Assessment, logoPurdue University is conducting a research study to learn about development of infants with Fragile X syndrome.

Participation

Who can participate?

Children age 6–18 months with the full mutation may be eligible to participate.

What will happen in the study?

If the individual qualifies and decides to be in this research study, they will complete research activities at home for three sets of activities over the next year. The following is a list of some of the assessments that will happen during the study:

  • Online surveys
  • Phone interviews
  • Telehealth-based play sessions
  • Day-long audio recordings of your child’s vocalizations
  • Sharing diagnostic records

What are the good things that can happen from this research?

Development of a new telehealth-based platform for remotely monitoring early clinical risk factors in rare syndromes.

What are the bad things that can happen from this research?

Risks include fussiness during the telehealth session, skin irritation or reddening from heart rate monitor adhesive (similar to a band aid), and potential loss of confidentiality. You are welcome to take as many breaks as needed during the telehealth session, or opt out of any tasks. All data is stored in secure, HIPAA-compliant locations, and is deidentified when possible. All researchers accessing your data have been trained to handle sensitive information.

There may be other risks that we do not know about yet.

Will you/your child be paid to complete this survey?

Participants receive $55 per round of assessment activities. You will also receive a brief developmental snapshot report of your child’s behavior as observed during the study.

Survey: How has the COVID-19 Pandemic Impacted Fragile X Families

Researchers at Teachers College at Columbia University are conducting a survey to learn about the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on multiple aspects of the lives of people with Fragile X Syndrome. We want to see how the Fragile X community specifically was impacted so that we can have a more focused plan of action for helping these families.

Parents and Caregivers of Adults with Fragile X Syndrome Needed for a Survey

Kaylynn Shuleski, a master’s in genetic counseling candidate, is conducting a research study to explore the concerns and challenges caregivers may face when planning long-term supports and living arrangements for their adult children with Fragile X syndrome (FXS). This information will be valuable for current and future families when considering long-term supports, as well as for healthcare professionals, counselors, and policy makers.  About the Study Who can participate?
