Hadley is a determined and joyful girl whose excitement for life rubs off on everyone around her. There is no song out there that Hadley couldn’t make up a dance to. She also loves water, maps, and interacting with just about anyone. Hadley has been receiving speech, occupational, and physical therapy since she was 18 months old. No matter how slow progress may be at times, Hadley never gives up on herself. One of Hadley’s strengths is her ability to imitate modeled behaviors or actions around her. Her parents recognize that Hadley maximizes her potential when she is afforded as many opportunities as possible to learn alongside her peers.  

After three years of searching for answers, receiving the DDX3X diagnosis brought an amazing community along with it for Hadley and her family. Finding acceptance, support, and resources through the DDX3X community has been a true gift.
