The SPD Foundation is the world leader in research, education, and awareness for Sensory Processing Disorder, a neurological condition that disrupts the daily lives of more than 4 million Americans. The SPD Foundation provides hope and help to individuals and families living with SPD.
We are committed to enhancing the quality of life for children and adults with SPD by conducting and collaborating in rigorous research into the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of SPD. Research at the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation is conducted in collaboration with the STAR (Sensory Therapies And Research) Center in Denver.
The SPD Foundation offers educational programs for parents and professionals. Educational offerings include both online programs and in-person workshops and conferences covering topics such as symptoms and behaviors of all the subtypes of SPD, assessments, and practical treatment strategies for home, school and clinic.
Our website provides the latest information about SPD, research, parent groups, treatment providers, frequently asked questions and other resources.
