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." - WEBSITE
