A Message from
Dan Rossignol, MD,
FAAFP & MAPS President

Dear Colleague,

We have all heard the statistic that 1 in 68 children in the United States has some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This means that an average of 1 in 30 households is somehow impacted by this disorder. If you deal with children as a pediatric physician, family doctor or care for children in any professional practice, your patient base verifies this trend.

As practicing medical professionals tasked with battling ASD, we need to implement a sound standard of care that is built on scientifically tested and proven methods. That is why I would like to introduce you to MAPS, the Medical Academy of Pediatrics Special Needs. This forward-thinking organization is dedicated to establishing, teaching and supporting the treatment of these children.

MAPS is working with the leading pediatric research institutes, as well as recruiting medical and scientific experts in the fields of Autism Spectrum Disorders and environmental medicine to develop an in-depth, CME approved curriculum, as well as developing one of the largest care-focused treatment databases dedicated to this area of practice. The timely development of this standard of care becomes even more critical when so many parents are turning to the internet for self-education. With so much "junk science" being pushed on these vulnerable families, they turn to us with their questions, concerns and hopes for a better life. And we, as concerned physicians, must be prepared. The same over-abundance of information is a challenge to us as well. That is why this group of physicians and scientists have joined together with the mission of evaluating and disseminating the practical research and established treatments of ASD.

I invite you to look through these pages to gain a better understanding of the breadth of information and the advantages that comes with association. From solid, respected training and certification, to patient referrals, peer collaboration and professional services support, MAPS offers a range of benefits to all members. We look forward to seeing you at our conferences!

Sincerely,
Dan Rossignol, MD FAAFP, FMAP
