Sensory Processing and Autism Network (SPAN)

Sensory Processing and Autism Network (SPAN) is a community-based research network (CBRN) committed to improving outcomes for individuals with sensory processing challenges and their families in everyday life.

By engaging a large network of clinicians, researchers, and other stakeholders, we intend to build a data repository, engage in large-scale scientific studies, and create a roadmap that will promote innovative, precise, and optimally effective approaches to addressing sensory processing challenges experienced by individuals with autism spectrum disorder or other neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as their families, now and for future generations.

Vision Statement
Be the leading hub for the highest level of evidence-based sensory processing research with societal impact.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to leverage our collective expertise, resources, and stakeholders to synergize goals, generate new discoveries, test/implement tailored assessments and interventions, and mobilize knowledge to influence practice, education, and policy.
