What is fetal alcohol syndrome Jessica had some difficulty this morning. She woke up sweaty and dehydrated. She thought it would be a good idea to wear her favorite flannel footie pajamas to bed even though it’s the middle of August in Miami.

She insisted on getting the larger size even though it didn’t fit. She did try to hold onto the railing on the way down the stairs but her grip is...

Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition that causes intellectual and behavioral changes. This condition is the most diagnosed genetic cause for intellectual disability; second only to Downs Syndrome. In the 1970s, the genetic abnormalities associated with the fragility of a segment of the X chromosome were identified, which led to the discovery of the condition called fragile X syndrome.
