Prenatally diagnosed children with extra X-chromosomes have been shown to profit neurodevelopmentally from the biological treatment of Testosterone “T-shots” in the first year of life.
There is a positive effect of Early Hormonal Treatment (EHT) where children benefit with improved speech, cognitive skills, and motor skills. The Focus Foundation sends a big thank you to our wonderful parent Amy M. for sharing their early hormonal treatment success story!
Quote from Mother of 17-month-old Boy
Wil is 17 months old and he’s 4 days-post his 2nd of 3 T-shots, all made possible by the team at The Focus Foundation, after our visit with the most knowledgeable of professionals.
Now, let me tell you, his development in the last 6 weeks is absolutely mind-blowing!!
He not only started walking, but running, babbling, and eating up a storm! We were stuck in purée and low muscle tone and development for 6 months prior.
And today he was discharged from physiotherapy because he’s meeting and surpassed all the developmental motor skills for his age and no longer requires the support!!!
I am so grateful for the help and interventions my boy clearly needed. He is thriving!!!
Carole Samango-Sprouse, Liz, the team, and all the donors that made our visit possible, thank you doesn’t feel big enough!
~ Amy M.
