On May 22, 2022, our publication on early detection and treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) HIT 500 READS!
The Focus Foundation is happy to share the publication, co-authored by our very own Carole Samango-Sprouse, Identification of infants at risk for autism spectrum disorder and developmental language delay prior to 12 months hit 500 reads!
This study demonstrates an efficient means to identify infants at risk for autism spectrum disorder by 9 months of age and serves to alert primary care providers of infants who are vulnerable to autism spectrum disorder before symptoms are discernible by the clinical judgment of primary care providers, parental concerns, or by screening questionnaires.
The Focus Foundation’s promise is to increase awareness, increase early detection, and discover innovative treatments for recovery. Our team and collaborators work hard in our efforts to reach, educate and embrace everyone touched by X and Y Chromosomal Variations and related disorders, like Autism, worldwide. We are ecstatic that our goals of increasing awareness, at the very least, are becoming a reality with this article hitting 500 reads!
The Focus Foundation is the first and only research-based non-profit foundation dedicated to identifying and helping children who have X & Y Chromosomal Variations. For every community in the country, 1 in every 500 people has X & Y Chromosomal Variations. Also, current research indicates that 1 in 500 births have a common X & Y Chromosomal Variation known as 47,XXY. One of our major goals is to raise awareness and raise funds will to help finance critical research for individuals with X & Y Chromosomal Variations, which can lead to further insights about the disorder and new treatments for the future.
The Focus Foundation fosters fast-paced, safe, and innovative scientific studies.
The Focus Foundation’s research and work towards raising awareness about X & Y Chromosomal Variations has been featured in news stories on NBC 5 Chicago, NBC 4 Washington, Fox 29 Philadelphia, ABC WJLA’s “Working Woman”, and more local and national news stations.
