We have an unprecedented opportunity to prove occupational therapy works for SPD.
Last summer Drs. Marco and Mukherjee, researchers at UCSF, published a study (see #1 below) documenting differences in MRI scans of brains of children with SPD from the brains of children with Autism and ADHD. They are ready to collaborate with the SPD Foundation and STAR Center to conduct MRI scans before treatment and after treatment to see the actual differences in the brain from therapy. What an exciting opportunity... and timely! Last week The Washington Post (see #2 Below) reported that "Most experts believe OT can help children with sensory processing issues, but some, ... caution that there's little scientific evidence to prove it."
It's time to PROVE IT! We need your help!
If everyone receiving this message donates $10 we can fund this study and get real answers about therapy. It's really easy to do.
Please, please donate $10 or more today and help show the real impact of therapy.
