Fragile X Conference

FYI and interest…


In August of 2010 my husband and I co-founded the Fragile X LINKS Group of Eastern Massachusetts. In that capacity, we support the mission of the National Fragile X Foundation by providing support to local families and planning both social and educational events.


On April 14th we, along with the Fragile X Resource Center of Western Massachusetts and the Fragile X Program at Children’s Hospital Boston, are hosting a conference in Worcester, MA. The conference will feature Tracy Murnan Stackhouse, MA, OTR and Sarah Sharfenaker, MA CCC-SLP, each a co-founder of Developmental FX in Denver, Colorado, Sharyn Lincoln, M.S., C.G.C. of Children’s Hospital Boston and Craig Penz of Seaside Therapeutics in Cambridge, MA.


Tracy and Mouse, as Sarah is better known, are terrific presenters with decades of experience with children with fragile X, sensory integration disorders and autism. Many of the methods they promote for children with fragile X translate well to children on the spectrum.


Certificates of attendance will be provided.  Attached is the conference brochure with more detailed information. Please feel free to contact either Eric or I with any questions.


Thank you,
