I'm really excited to be connected to the incredible Sensory Processing Disorder researchers at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco. This team of neuroscientists, neurologists, geneticists, radiologists, and computational experts is working hard to uncover critical information about SPD. They're the team that discovered the biological basis of SPD in 2013 and the brain wiring differences of SPD versus Autism in 2014, both groundbreaking studies with findings that continue to shape the medical community and the lives of all people with SPD.
They've recently surpassed their $50,000 fundraising goal to support the next round of crucial studies on SPD, including genetics, brain imaging to uncover the specific brain connections that contribute to the practical challenges of SPD, and new treatments, but donations are always welcome.
I truly believe in the work that they're doing to change the lives of people like me. To voice my support, I wrote the following blurb. I'm proud to say that it was featured on their fundraising website this week, as well as emailed to all donors:
