Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) is a genetic condition causing intellectual disability, behavioural and learning challenges and various physical characteristics. It is also the most common single gene cause of autism worldwide. It appears in people of all ethnic, racial and socio economic backgrounds.

It is estimated that 5 per cent of people with a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum disorder also have Fragile X.
