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.

Our Most Recent Opportunities
The Research in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Lab at the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is looking for parents of male or female children 6 to 17 years old with Fragile X syndrome for an online survey.
RTI International and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are conducting an early intervention study to learn about the best ways to support early development in infants identified with the full mutation of Fragile X. Babies 0–9 months old with the full mutation, and their caregivers, may be eligible to participate.
Doctors at Rush University are researching cognition, balance, and walking patterns in people who carry a premutation in the Fragile X (FMR1) gene.
The University of South Carolina is conducting a research study focusing on the range of language, social, and cognitive features that may be associated with variations on the FMR1 gene. Women age 35-75 who are carriers of the Fragile X premutation may be eligible to participate.
