Support the Foundation
Please help The Focus Foundation—and the children it serves—by making a financial contribution to our efforts. Your contribution will fund research that will help with the early identification and treatment of children who have X & Y Variations, Developmental Dyspraxia and/or Dyslexia. Monies raised will also be used to foster the development of treatment programs, establish scholarships and promote awareness of these three conditions.
