As you prepare for your visit, begin to write down basic questions for the clinic staff that may not have been covered in your initial discussion with the clinic coordinator. Please know — and continue to remind yourself — that no question is silly or strange or unwelcome.
If you are wondering about something, it’s virtually certain that the very same question has occurred to many other people — and Fragile X professionals have probably heard it.
Clinic staff are well-informed, trained, and compassionate, ready to answer (or find out the answer to) any question you may have. So please do ask!
Typical questions include:
- Why does my child/family member do _________?
- What can or should I do in these situations?
- What can I expect from this type of therapy or medication?
- Is it wrong to _________?
