Best Schools

Here at BestSchools.com we recently published our 2016 College Resources for Students with Disabilities. In the course of our research we found that most student with disabilities were not aware of all the grants, scholarships and education resources that are available to them. So we decided to create a user-friendly guide that explores rights and protection provided by law, the many different education opportunities as well as in-depth grants and scholarship programs designed specifically to support higher education. We hope our guide will not only answer common questions, but make it easier for those living with disabilities to leverage the educational benefits they have earned.

Inspired by the late Bernard Rimland, PhD., a leader in the biomedical movement, MAPS embodies his vision and direction of physician education and development in the field of ASD care.

A common concern that many parents have when seeking biomedical interventions for their child is that the therapies and protocols their physician is recommending may be based on the provider’s private choice. Parents may feel that their child is not receiving a full measure” of care. Previous programs teaching biomedical interventions typically focused on attending a minimum number of prescribed courses, and were never able to look beyond to the practitione’s actual implementation. MAPS combines education with mentoring to help physicians implement the MAPS philosophy into their practice. This is the MAPS difference.

The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation

Provide grants to programs that enrich the lives of adolescents and adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Also provides community outreach and education regarding the life-span issues associated with ASD.

The Gluten Free Casein Free (GFCF) Diet

The Gluten Free Casein Free (GFCF) Diet is one of the very first recommendations for children diagnosed with autism. This is because many of the children lack the [dpp4] enzyme that allows them to break down gluten (proteins in wheat) and casein (proteins in dairy). This can cause poor attention, odd behavior, a deficit in socialization skills and poor speech. Consequently, when gluten- and casein-based foods are removed improved behavior, better attention, at times improved speech and an increase in socialization skills can follow.

The Handle Institute

The HANDLE (Holistic Approach to NeuroDevelopment & Learning Efficiency) Institute provides effective non-drug evaluation and treatment for individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet

Research shows that fungi and bacteria in the GI tract cause gastrointestinal problems and neurological problems such as autism. Studies also indicate that starches and certain sugars feed these fungi and bacteria. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) eliminates the foods that feed these microorganisms, starving the pathogens so that they leave the body. The child is no longer a hostage to billions of pathogenic invaders that poison the gut and brain.

The US Autism and Asperger Association (USAAA)

USA provides education, research, support, and solutions through conferences, newsletters, and resources. Its mission is to enhance the quality of life of individuals and their families touched by autism spectrum disorders.
