Applications for the second round of Generation Rescue’s Rescue Family grant program are available now on the Generation Rescue web site.
The program is available for children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and who have not yet started any biomedical treatment. Grant recipients are given vitamins, supplements, DAN! doctor visits, guidance in implementing biomedical treatment and a gluten- and casein- free diet. Families are asked to document their children’s progress during the program.
If you can answer yes to any of the following questions, you are not eligible to apply.
Has your child seen a Defeat Autism Now (DAN!) doctor before?
Has your child received private lab testing from Great Plains, Doctors Data, or Metametrix? For a stool analysis or an organic acid test?
Has your child been on anti-fungal or anti-viral therapy?
Does your family make over the median income for your zip code?
Does your child currently take any supplements other than fish oil?
