Fragile X Clinical & Research Consortium
The clinics of the Fragile X Clinical & Research Consortium (FXCRC) provide individuals and families affected by one or more of the Fragile X conditions with comprehensive evaluation and treatment recommendations.
Fragile X clinics provide medical services (including medication evaluation and consultation) supervised by a physician and supported by the latest medical, educational, and research knowledge available. Multidisciplinary services and/or referrals, such as occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, behavioral therapy, and genetic counseling, are available within the institutions or through referral.
Many of the clinics also participate in collaborative research efforts with other Fragile X clinics and professionals. Besides serving families closer to where they live, these clinics also benefit the Fragile X community by sharing knowledge, research, and clinical experience with one another. This in turn helps the patients whom they serve.
Fly With Me Fund
The Fly with Me Fund provides financial assistance for families to travel to a Fragile X member clinic to receive the most appropriate evaluation and treatment services. Applications must be submitted by the medical director or the clinic coordinator of the clinic. When you schedule your appointment, ask to speak to one of them to begin the application process.
Special thanks to the Silver Family for their continuous fundraising efforts that help make this program possible.
