With Barbara Haas-Givler

Barbara Haas-Givler, BCBA, is the clinic director at the Geisinger Fragile X Center in Pennsylvania. She took the time to share some thoughts, tips, and methods for caregivers on supporting your child with Fragile X syndrome during special times, like the COVID-19 response.

Take 17 minutes to listen — it is worth your time.
