Educational Issues

One of the greatest challenges you and your child will face will be providing him with a school life that is complete, rewarding, and fun.

(Information in this section was contributed, in part, by James Poysky, PhD. You can read Dr. Poysky’s entire document, Learning and Behavior in Duchenne, in our Education Matters section.)

Let's seize this moment.


There has never been so much momentum in the Duchenne community. Help us keep moving forward by donating to fund CRISPR/Cas9 gene‑editing technology. Every gift to PPMD is being doubled until we raise $250,000—but we have to reach this goal by 12/31!
