The Spiral Foundation

Welcome to the Spiral Foundation

2014 Annual Appeal
 Thanks to your support this has been a fantastic year for the Spiral Foundation; in just a few short months we broadened our research and educational horizons substantially, such that we were able to: launch our new Self-Study program; expanded our quarterly webinar series;  and added two new full online courses. And, perhaps most excitingly, we are now able to offer AOTA approved continuing education units for all of our live and online programs! Work is moving forward for our research projects. We’ve begun data collection for our Adult Sensory History and are now recruiting for a study on praxis and play skills in children.

And we couldn’t do any of this without you. So thank you again.

Now, in the last stretch of 2014, we are looking ahead to next year and we are very excited about the future of Spiral and what we have to offer you. Our mission is to bring you another year of the quality educational materials and resources you deserve.

This year we hope to raise $35,000 by January 31. We are offering a variety of tiered rewards for all donations of $50 or more, including a new exclusive one hour webinar only available to Spiral Supporters! To learn more about the webinar and donations rewards, visit our 'Annual Appeal' homepage here.
