Living with Fragile X - www.livingwithfragilex.com 2008 - DVD : 64 mins.

"The goal of “Living with Fragile X” is to educate audiences about the syndrome... but the documentary is also meant to reveal a new view of those in our society that are traditionally considered “flawed” or “abnormal”. Who decides what's normal? Because an individual is different than you and me, should he or she be “fixed”?
“Living with Fragile X” takes a rare and intimate look at the lives of several families who live with a member affected by fragile X syndrome.
Fragile X is the leading cause of inherited mental disability and the leading known cause of autism.
“Living with Fragile X” explains what fragile X is and how it is passed, exposes the day-to-day challenges faced by those who have fragile X and reveals the frustrations of parents and their fears for what the future holds."
