Fragile X syndrome and associated disorders affect approximately 1 in every 4000 people. Fragile x is the most common inherited cause of intellectual disability. The foundation works on education, medical interventions, family support and scientific research to support those families who are affected. The foundation sponsors parent support groups in Northern California and throughout the country, with a dedicated set of medical clinics and doctors trained in understanding these disorders. Their international conference occurs every two years.
