Eu Digo X ("I say X") Program

The program was created to disseminate information about Fragile X Syndrome, expanding knowledge and sensitizing the population to the cause. We promote support and assistance in prevention, tracking, diagnosis, education and social inclusion with families registered in the
program, seeking partnerships with public and private society. At the moment, Eu Digo X Program has registered families from all regions of the country. In the moment, a large part of them still awaits results from the diagnostic examination of the Fragile X Syndrome.

The Fragile X Syndrome

The Fragile X Syndrome still is a little known genetic condition, though it is widespread, and affects intellectual development, behavior and causes speech delays.

Studies indicate that it is the most common hereditary cause of intellectual disability and that it can often be associated with autism.

It manifests itself in men as in women and can be present in several individuals within the same family.

Together for the Rare

In the month in which the Parana Awareness Week on the Fragile X Syndrome, Buko Kaesemodel Institute and Athletico Paranaense Foundation (FUNCAP), came together for a month of alert regarding rare syndromes and diseases, providing a visit to CT do Caju for 12 participants of the PR Group for Rare Diseases and Syndromes and their guardians.

The Weel-being Project


The purpose of that project is to take care of caretakers, aiming at the physical and psychological well-being of pre-mutated mothers and women enrolled in the “Eu Digo X” program.

Autism Day

International Autism Awareness Day was the date chosen with the aim of bringing information to reduce discrimination and prejudice against individuals who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). For this reason, the Buko Kaesemodel Institute, Jockey Plaza Shopping and the VONDER tool brand have come together for an innovative action.
