The aim of this study is to investigate the presence of sleep problems and gastrointestinal symptoms in children and adolescents with Fragile X syndrome between the ages of 3 and 17 years. It is important to understand the relationship between sleep problems and gastrointestinal problems and challenging behaviour in children and adolescents with Fragile X syndrome.Even if your child does not have sleep problems or gastrointestinal symptoms, you are still invited to take part as your information can still contribute and help us understand why these symptoms present in some children and not in others. If you wish to participate in the study, you are asked to complete the following questionnaire online.
I will be expected to present all related information to my academic supervisor, Dr. Geraldine Leader. We aim to publish this research in an academic journal. Should you agree to have your child participate, I can send you the article when it is published. You or your child will not be identified in any publication. Your child’s identity will be kept completely confidential, and will not be shared with anyone else.
Thank you for participating in this research.
