The transmission of Fragile X Syndrome can be prevented through genetic counseling.

Couples with a family history of FXS can have their DNAs genetically analyzed and, once the mutation is located, in vitro fertilization can be done to prevent it from being passed on to future generations.

For this reason, it is very important to establish an accurate diagnosis, especially when it comes to the first case identified in the family.



After the diagnosis of the syndrome, it is important to start treatment immediately, which does not lead to a cure but helps to improve the quality of life of the affected person and the family.

Some more pronounced symptoms such as anxiety, aggression, and depression (which cannot be interpreted in isolation as specific symptoms of the syndrome) can be treated with appropriate medication.

Pedagogical and psychological support tends to improve school performance.

Some therapies such as speech therapy and occupational therapy can lead to a healthier social life.
