Thanks to donors from all over the world, the FamilieSCN2A Foundation is able to help fund research to better understand SCN2A, find effective treatments and work toward finding a cure! We are excited to be able to award grants toward research and provide information on other grant programs available.

SCN2A International OT Database Registration

Are you an Occupational Therapist who's sees a child or children with SCN2A? Please consider participating in this international database so we can begin to define parameters of best practices to ultimately measure effectiveness of therapy and determine multiple ways of supporting children diagnosed with SCN2A.

 OT Database

Our requests for applications (RFAs) serve a critical function in helping us fulfill SFARI’s mission (“to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders by funding innovative research of the highest quality and relevance”). These open calls for scientific proposals are SFARI’s opportunity to consider some of the research community’s most creative and impactful ideas.
