Our Mission

To redirect a baby born with T21 from a life of mediocrity, to a normal and independent one

To provide every family in the world with the formula 21, a custom designed intervention program specific to T21

To integrate persons with T21 into every facet of society

Why

There are currently many recommended forms of early intervention. There is no doubt that intervention has a profoundly positive impact on a child’s future but until now, there hasn’t been a singular document that presents a composite profile of obstacles that T21 presents. Formula21 helps families understand what issues need to be combatted early.

How

Our aim is to provide every family, support center and institution with a full briefing of formula21. Our network begins with digital, print and personal campaigns to educate from the first day of diagnosis. By spreading the word and leading by example, young children who are engaged in our custom and basic intervention guidelines will undoubtedly achieve more independence and contribution to society than those without. Someday we hope to see government funding be redirected towards early & aggressive intervention, over today’s ineffective and dwindling support for individuals and their families. Funds supporting people with T21 across an entire lifetime for housing, transportation and meals could be reduced to a fraction if governmental effort and spending focused on the early precious years of development, under the age of ten. Also on a parallel, The SKate Foundation supports GiGi’s Playhouse Achievement Centers. Thanks to incredible volunteers and positivity, GiGi’s provides therapeutic play, education and support - all for FREE in their communities.
