Fragile X Syndrome is estimated to cause 10 per cent of all mental retardation and to be significantly linked to childhood autism. This volume provides a coherent, comprehensive overview of the disorder. The authors are leaders in the field and their approaches span the range of biological and psychological perspectives.

The prevalence and historical roots of the Syndrome are examined, as are the wide range of symptomatic behaviours. Recommendations for intervention and treatment are discussed and current scientific findings are presented in a way that makes them accessible to a wide range of readers, including clinicians, teachers and parents.
