Social Anxiety and Social Motivation in Children with Fragile-X Syndrome

This project is due to launch in October 2022 - check back for updates and news of how to get involved

What is the study about? We are interested in characterising the social behavioural profile of children and adolescents with fragile X syndrome and investigating the relationship between this social profile and the symptoms associated with co-occurring anxiety and autism.

Who can take part? Males with fragile X syndrome aged 7-17 years and their parents/caregivers.

What does it involve? Participation involves one in-person session, which will include behavioural and physiological (wearing a heart rate monitor) assessments, clinical interviews, and parent-report questionnaires. The study will take approximately 3 hours to complete. You can visit us at the University of Warwick or Aston University, or we can visit you at your home.

How can I take part? Please contact Kayla Smith ( if you are interested in participating or would like to discuss the study in more detail.
