St. John’s Study: Positive Family Intervention for Families of Children with Fragile X Syndrome

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.
