Syndrome X fragile (SXF) is the most common cause of inhe-rited intellectual disability. It's characterized by a very specific physical and behavioral phenotype. The SXF is caused by a mutation in the FMR1 gene located on chromosome X, locus Xq27.3. Gene mutation causes an abnormal number of repetitions of the triple CGG (cytosine-guanine-guanine). The SXF analysis represents a good model to determine the relationship between genes and behavior. The area of reading and writing in the fragile X population samples too many dark areas. The main problems of the SXF with reading and writing have their origin in disorders of language and motor difficulties and sensory integration. Our work aims to expand and systematize organically some aspects that we consider fundamental for improving educational practice and restore reading deficiencies. In this line of action we highlight both methodological strategies and programmed proposals which should be explored to learn about their educational value and practical effectiveness.
