USC Adolescent Language Study

The Neurodevelopmental Disorders Lab at the University of South Carolina has a newly-funded research study examining how language abilities impact the success of adolescents with fragile X syndrome after graduating high school and entering into adulthood. They are currently recruiting adolescent males who are 14-22 years of age with the full mutation of fragile X. The study is longitudinal and participation includes four annual, day and a half visits completing various activities, including interviews with the parent(s) in the lab on the USC campus. Travel costs are covered by the project.

The Neurodevelopmental Disorders Lab at the University of South Carolina under Dr. Jane Roberts has been conducting research in fragile X syndrome for over 15 years. Their work is focused on understanding the development of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism and fragile X syndrome.
