In brief: Support

The fragile x disorder defines a group of kids that will have significant problems development & learning over their lifetime.
There is no specific med or treatment to reverse the process. Management is focused primarily on improving self help skills, social awareness and interaction & working with the school systems to assist learning to whatever level is possible.
