Synopsis

What is Fragile X? The most common inherited cause of learning difficulties, affecting a child's ability to tackle key areas such as literacy and numeracy, and causing behaviour problems and social anxiety. What can teachers do to help children with Fragile X become more effective learners? This definitive text will provide essential support and information for teachers withnbsp;the expertise of an international field of researchers, whose variety of perspectives contribute to anbsp;unique, multi-professional approach. Each chapter of the book suggests practical intervention strategies, based on sound educational principles expressed innbsp;clear non-specific terms. A range of important topics are considered, including: * the physical and behavioural characteristics of Fragile X * the effects of Fragile X on learning * medication and therapy * related conditions such as autism and attention deficit disorders. Breaking down the barriers of professional practice, this book establishes the groundwork for successful and valuable multi-professional teamwork. By providing immediate access to a body of empirical knowledge and advice from other disciplines, it will encourage teachers to incorporate this approach into their own practice.nbsp;Everyone responsible for the education of a child with Fragile X syndrome should read this book.
