What to do if your child has been diagnosed with FXS

Early intervention services in each state help children from birth to 3 years old learn important skills. For children ages 3 years and older, contact your local public school. You can ask to have your child evaluated, and these services may improve your child’s development. For information about services in your state, you can access your state’s parent center.
