Welcome

The Focus Foundation is the first and only research-based agency exclusively dedicated to identifying and helping children who have X & Y Variations (also called X & Y Chromosomal Variations or Sex Chromosome Disorders; within the disorder are many sub-categories, which are identified by names including Klinefelter Syndrome, Tetrasomy X, Pentasomy X, 49 XXXXX, 48 XXXY, 49 XXXXY, XYY, and 47 XXY.), Dyslexia and/or Developmental Dyspraxia, conditions that lead to language-based disabilities, motor planning deficits, reading dysfunction, and attention and behavioral disorders. All physicians, ancillary health care providers and special educators are taught that genetic abnormalities can impact a child's development. Unfortunately, because most  practitioners often receive insufficient information about these chromosome disorders, they don't even consider testing for X & Y Variations when caring for a child who presents with developmental concerns.

Early Identification + Targeted Treatment = Recovery
