The Fragile X Society– India was formed to help all Indian families affected by Fragile X-associated Disorders, including fragile X syndrome, in a way that is appropriate for our many cultures. Having a child with special needs is enigmatic in itself and dealing with the social taboos and ignorance surrounding disability makes it even more difficult. We are here to help you help your child. Unconditional love, acceptance and the right direction can make a world of a difference. Let’s put the pieces together!! - Shalini N. Kedia, Chairperson

Fragile X includes:

Fragile X syndrome (FXS), the most common cause of inherited mental impairment. This impairment can range from learning disabilities to more severe cognitive or intellectual disabilities. (Sometimes referred to as mental retardation.) FXS is the most common known cause of autism or "autistic-like" behaviors. Symptoms also can include characteristic physical and behavioral features and delays in speech and language development.

Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS), a condition which affects balance, tremor and memory in some older male gene carriers.

Fragile X-associated primary ovarian insufficiency (FXPOI), a problem with ovarian function which can lead to infertility and early menopause in some female gene carriers.
