Parents of children ages 0-13 with full or premutation Fragile X needed for a survey

RTI International is conducting a survey to learn about the early needs and experiences of families with children, aged 13 or younger, who have been diagnosed with either the full or the premutation of Fragile X.

The online survey should take about 20–90 minutes to complete, depending on the number of eligible children (see more below). The survey may be completed in more than one sitting.

Eligibility

Parents of children with premutation or full mutation Fragile X that meet one of these age requirements may be eligible to participate:

  • Age 0–7 (under 8)
  • Age 0–13 (under 14) and is the first child diagnosed in family

What to Expect

The survey is online and parents will answer a set of questions for each child:

  • First child diagnosed (age 0–13) — approx. 10 min.
  • Children (age 0–7) — approx. 45 min. each

The survey can be completed all at the same time, or divided into more than one sitting.

FAQs

The information you provide will contribute to our understanding of the needs and experiences of families with young children with Fragile X. More specifically, it will help us support families in the Early Check study in North Carolina whose newborns have been diagnosed with Fragile X and inform the design of an early intervention program for these babies.

With any online survey, there is a slight risk of loss of confidentiality. However, the research team will make every effort to keep your information private. Your identifiable information will not be shared with anyone outside the research team. There may be other risks that we do not know about yet.

No. Please note that this survey may ask for names and ages, however we (NFXF) will not have access to that data.

No, but when the survey is closed, 20 of the participants will be chosen by a random drawing to receive a $50 gift card!
