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)
