MAPS Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs

MAPS – Medical Academy of Pediatrics Special Needs 

We are a group of professionals who offer a Comprehensive Education & Fellowship to Medical Professionals for the care of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and related chronic complex conditions.

The rapidly increasing scientific evidence-based material that supports the medical treatment of autism spectrum related medical disorders is evolving and passed on to practitioners in a systematic, in-depth course of study, in order to have the greatest impact on this medically complex pediatric population.

The first of its kind, the Fellowship Program at Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (MAPS) is a systematic pediatric CME program designed to prepare a medical professional to deliver the best possible care to children in distress. Under the guidance of Daniel Rossignol MD FAAFP, this scientific evidence-based course of study has been uniquely designed by clinicians, for clinicians.

Parents are searching for qualified practitioners who can help their children reach their full potential. Clinicians are searching for solid, evidence-based education that will best prepare them to help their special needs patients. When searching through the complexities of these neuro-developmental disorders, MAPS helps provide direction.

To prepare medical professionals in delivering the best possible care to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other special needs conditions.

Rossignol Medical Center

Integrative Medicine – When we use the term integrative medicine in our practice, we are referring to molding (integrating) the latest laboratory research with treatments to hopefully improve clinical outcomes. We strive to do this based on evidence-based medicine and the use of biomarkers, where we add treatments either based on underlying biochemical testing (for example, giving carnitine and coenzyme Q10 when there is laboratory evidence, using biomarker measurements, of mitochondrial dysfunction) or evidence-based treatments (for example, giving nutritional supplements or medications that have been studied and proven to help symptoms such as speech delay, attention, hyperactivity, etc.…).

What We Believe – We do not believe that patients with certain conditions, such as autism, should be told that the condition is hopeless or that no testing or treatments are available. Conditions such as autism are defined by a subjective group of symptoms, and therefore a diagnosis of autism does not reveal the underlying cause(s). We strive to identify what may be causing abnormal functioning of cells in persons with autism and other disorders using biomarkers that are objective, testable and treatable.
We also keep up with the latest evidence-based research on conditions such as autism, noting that at least 20 nutritional supplements and 45 medications have been studied in people with autism. Therefore, we do not feel that patients with autism or their parents should be told that there is nothing “real” going on, and that nothing can be tested for, and that nothing can be treated. To the contrary, many tests and treatments are available, and many individuals can improve over time. However, we cannot guarantee or promise such improvements. But we do promise that we will really listen to you and do our best to identify appropriate testing and treatment options.

At the heart of functional medicine is examining what may be causing a medical problem, not necessarily treating just the symptoms.

The Board represents more than 600 member businesses throughout Southeast Pennsylvania.

The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board was established as the Valley Forge Convention and Visitors Bureau by the Montgomery County Commissioners in 1963, making it the officially chartered tourism promotion agency of Montgomery County. It was an agency of Montgomery County until 1999, when the County Commissioners voted to privatize the bureau, while maintaining fiduciary oversight through appointment of the agency’s volunteer board of directors.

The Board is now a private organization. Funding comes from a combination of Commonwealth of Pennsylvania grants, membership dues and a tax imposed on visitors occupying the County’s more than 9,200 hotel rooms. The Board does not receive funding from Montgomery County.
