About Focus Foundation, Inc.
The Focus Foundation is a voluntary, non-profit organization dedicated to helping children and families affected by X and Y chromosomal variations, dyslexia, and dyspraxia. The Focus Foundation believes that through increased awareness, early identification and syndrome-specific treatment, children with these conditions can reach their full potential. Children with all three disorders are markedly under diagnosed. When untreated, these children experience school failure, develop low self-esteem, increased medical problems and have behavioral disturbances. Children with X and Y chromosomal variations often have dyslexia and dyspraxia. However, 75% of children with X and Y chromosomal variations are undiagnosed, thus some children with dyslexia and dyspraxia may have an underlying X & Y chromosomal variation that has not been identified.
