Prenatally diagnosed children with extra X-chromosomes have been shown to profit neurodevelopmentally from the biological treatment of testosterone 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.

Thank you to one of our wonderful parents Amy for sharing your story! 🙌

Today is National Coloring Book Day! 🖍Coloring is a fun activity for both kids and adults to get silly, use their imagination, and relax. There are so many reasons to color from making something pretty to using up that creative energy. It’s also a great activity to focus on or to do while multitasking. #NationalColoringBookDay

Parents play a vital role in the lives of children. From our birth, parents protect, teach, provide, and serve as role models. As part of a family, we look to them for guidance. We mirror their behavior and learn to be a core part of our communities. 💜💙💜

Throughout our lives, our parents lead us to be independent thinking individuals. As many of us know, those efforts can be challenging. The world is changing as quickly as they grow. Often the sleepless nights and worry seem endless. On this particular Sunday, The Focus Foundation wants to honor all parents who do everything to raise and protect their children. #NationalParentsDay

We're continuing our celebration of #WorldHandwritingDay by focusing on the strengthening of hand muscles! It is much more than the physical act of writing - exercises like these also include visual perceptual skills and the appropriate development of hand musculature. https://t.co/ZFz0zB6VJp FocusOnDeXY photo

#Dysgraphia affects a child's ability to write w/ a pen, pencil, or crayon. It also affects other tasks that require fine motor skills, such as using scissors or buttoning a shirt. Dysgraphia often overlaps w/ other learning disabilities such as dyslexia & ADHD, but not always. https://t.co/AMLrPpaVF8
