Using Telehealth to Reduce Problem Behavior and Improve Maternal Mental Health
Free Treatment Study!
Are you a mother of a child with Fragile X Syndrome? Would you like free parent training?
At St. John’s University, we are conducting a research study on the effectiveness of a parent training program for parents of children with Fragile X syndrome. We are currently seeking mothers to volunteer to participate in this parent training program.
This study might be right for you if:
- You are the mother of a child who has Fragile X syndrome (full mutation)
- Children are between the ages of 3 and 12 years old.
- You and your child live in the same home.
- Your child displays serious challenging behaviors such as physical aggression, self- injury, property destruction, or non-compliance.
The potential benefits of the study are:
- You may increase your knowledge of your child’s challenging behaviors and empirically supported strategies for addressing challenging behaviors.
- The parent training program may also benefit you by helping you to reduce your child’s challenging behaviors and improve your family’s quality of life.
