The Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation is an incredibly efficient and streamlined foundation that has produced voluminous (and powerfully relevant) research in the field of Sensory Processing Disorder. I am a mother of a child with SPD and have a Ph.D. in a related field. Having participated in many grant writing and research projects (NIH), I found the research labs at the SPD Foundation to be creative, efficient, and highly pragmatic.
Our family has benefitted greatly from the work at the foundation. As always, my donations have gone to very specific campaigns that have a huge impact on the lives of families and children affected by Sensory Processing Disorder.
I feel grateful for the work produced by this humble community and will continue to support them for the life changing work in our family and the lives of so many.

If you are interested in a research only non-profit, the SPD foundation does some good work. However, there are several weaknesses I found that bothered me. I could not find any credible financial data on the organization for starters (also noted here on Navigator). I traced back a history to the KID Foundation, which had very, very high expense ratios among other issues. It looks like the same team is leading the SPD Foundation. Outside of the rhetoric on the website, I could not find any programs that actually helped people with the disorder. Plenty of information and referrals and great education conferences (if you can pay for them), but no Foundation programs that could help my family with struggles in identification, treatment and navigating the school programs. Finally, I could not find what exactly they were raising money to fund. Seems like a general operating fund to cover overhead barring clear financials or notable sponsorship.
