Foundation / Javascript & SEO

I'm a real newbie when it comes to responsive design frameworks, one thing is bothering me and I can't seem to find an answer. SEO is very important to me, I develop sites for genealogists who rely on good site ranking results to generate traffic and new volunteers for community research development efforts. I've long believed, based on what I've read over the last few years, that placing content behind a Javascript 'wall' prevents that content being evaluated by search robots and hence severely compromises the value of a site.

My question therefore is - is it possible to use Foundation in such a way that SEO is not compromised - if so, what facilities should be avoided.

TIA - John Dobson
