Abstract

These qualitative analyses are a component of the clinical trial: “Effects of Sertraline Treatment for Young Children with FXS: Examination of Developmental Outcomes and Family Contexts.”

We argue that inclusion of a sociocultural perspective within the context of a clinical trial affords consideration of:

  • A dynamic view of development – simultaneous consideration of biological and sociocultural factors (Vygotsky, 1978).
  • Application of a bioecological framework and consideration of ever changing nested settings and contexts over time (Bronfenbrenner, 2005)
