May is National X & Y Chromosome
Welcome! The Focus Foundation is quite busy, working to increase awareness of its goal to identify and help children who have X and Y
Variations, Dyslexia and/or Developmental Dyspraxia.
Donate to The Focus Foundation on #GivingTuesday! Contribute to our giving initiative to raise scholarship money for families to
receive syndrome specific care for children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and rare genetic disorders, specifically X & Y Chromosomal
Variations. Help us find and focus on the children hiding in plain sight!
We're focused on finding The Forgotten Children
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, 49 XXXXY, Tetrasomy X, 49 XXXXXX, Pentasomy X, 48 XXY 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 sex 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
