The clinic has received funding from the FRAXA Research Foundation and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. In 2008 the Fragile X Syndrome Clinic plans to begin participation in multi-center clinical trials of novel drugs focused specifically on individuals with fragile X syndrome.
