Partnering with National Support Groups
What are the implications of what we found?
Our research thrives because of the interactions with national charities supporting individuals with genetic disorders and their families. We also summarise our findings for parents and families in short reports, most of which are also published in the Newsletters of the Societies with which we collaborate (e.g., the Fragile X Society, the Williams Syndrome Foundation, Unique, the Down Syndrome Educational Trust).

In an exciting partnership, we teamed up with the Fragile X Society for an exciting meeting bringing together researchers working on fragile X syndrome across the UK and beyond. The programme is available here. All talks were recorded and are available here.
