Ways To Give

We’re in DYS together

With your help, we’re building a bridge of hope for patients and their families whose lives have been upended by this little known, but widely prevalent, condition.

We’re not just providing education.

We’re changing lives.

We are the global leader in DYS education.

This is How We Do It

A Groundbreaking Course

The biggest problem in autonomic medicine today is the lack of knowledge about dysautonomia in communities and especially community-based healthcare professionals. Most patients see between 5 and 20 doctors before receiving an accurate diagnosis. It’s that gap between autonomic specialists and community-based doctors that led TDP and the American Autonomic Society to the creation of The Residents Course. This is an intensive course in autonomic medicine for medical residents specializing in internal medicine, family practice, neurology, and pediatrics. These young doctors return to their residency programs to train their peers to recognize autonomic disorders. This will exponentially increase the number of providers who are trained and know about autonomic disorders. 

The Dysautonomia Project Book

The Definitive Guide

The Dysautonomia Project was written by a patient and physicians for patients and physicians. More than 20,000 books have been distributed throughout the United States and in many other countries.  The chapters are unique. Each topic covered includes a section for patients and one for physicians. This book initiates dialogue in clinical and hospital settings and most importantly encourages more accurate assessment and treatment of dysautonomia patients. 

When a patient can’t buy a book, you can help us make sure they receive one.

TDP & AAS Online Video Courses

Global Reach

Free online education is at the heart of our mission. As TDP grows, so does our library of online video courses for providers and patients.  Providers can access courses taught by leading experts in autonomic medicine and apply that knowledge to diagnosing and treating patients with autonomic disorders. Patients have access to information about diagnosing, treating, and living with autonomic disorders, which empowers them to manage and advocate for their own healthcare. 


Patient & Caregiver Education

DysCourse if a FREE, special patient and caregiver educational event aimed at providing tools for managing autonomic disordersThis event is offered both in person and virtually, allowing patients around the world to access life-saving information and resources. 

Community Education Programs

Feet on the Ground

TDP reaches communities across America through in-person education. From national conferences to local clinics, nursing schools to school systems, the power of education is proving to significantly lower the time to diagnosis.

"If you are like me and have been pushing in hard for many years or maybe not so many years...for a diagnosis and just want more information on Dysautonomia conditions then this is the book for you!"

"Truly amazing book, an insight into Dysautonomia, informative and educational for both the patient, family and clinicians."

"Excellent book, on many levels, it helped with understanding links with gastroparesis and hypermobility amongst many other things."
