autism and fragile x syndrome

My 8 year old son has autism. We recently took him to see a genetic doctor and he wants to do some test to check his chromosomes and to see if he has fragile x syndrome. Is there a connection between autism and fragile x and what is it exactly.

I have heard that fragile x is more common in autistic kids. Other than that, I don't know. You could probably google the info.
