K.I.D.S. IQ Project was co-founded by Hira & Neha Verma and Andy & Lindsay Klump. The Verma and Klump families have children affected by Kleefstra syndrome (KS), an ID disorder. The two families quickly realized that the issue of ID was one that plagued so many genetic disorders, with KS being just one of them. In an effort to tackle ID more holistically, the families founded K.I.D.S. IQ Project.

In addition to its Board and management team, K.I.D.S. IQ Project has assembled a world-class Scientific Advisory Board. K.I.D.S. IQ Project has also partnered with reputable charitable organizations in the U.S. (CAF America) and the U.K. (GlobalGiving Foundation). These partnerships enable tax receipts to be issued to U.S. and U.K. donors (in addition to the Canadian donor base already covered through K.I.D.S. IQ Project’s Canadian charitable status).
