It is a voluntary, not-for-profit organization whose primary goals are to:

  • promote medical research into the cause and treatment of Types A and B NPD
  • provide medical and educational information to assist in the correct diagnosis and referral of children with NPD
  • provide support to families of children with NPD
  • facilitate genetic counseling for parents who are known carriers of NPD
  • encourage the sharing of research information among scientists
