Individuals who have been diagnosed with a full fragile X mutation (FXS) and are between the ages of birth through 24 years of age will be asked if they would like to sign the consent and fill out forms in order to take part in the both Fragile X Clinical and Research Registry and Database. Individuals who have a family member who has been diagnosed with a fragile X mutation or does not have a mutation are also eligible to sign the consent and fill out the intake form to participate in the Registry.
