Pre-school days.

When Geoffrey was 4 years old, he entered pre-school at the local kinder in our town. We applied for funding to get him an integration aide, but because some of the parents on the selection panel did not know what Fragile X was, his application was discarded. We have to remember that in these years, Fragile X was less known that it is today. Even with medical doctors, when they read that Geoffrey had Fragile X, I was asked to explain what it was, what it meant for Geoffrey and then also the impact that it had on my family. At times I found this frustrating.
