I've enjoyed working with autistic spectrum children as well as elders and military veterans. One of the endeavors for serving people in those and all populations is: DC Natural Neuroscience.
The natural health care field is deepening its help for people with concerns about "mind", "behavioral health","spectrum" conditions, etc. Here are a few links that I recently discovered:

**I am proud to have worn a military uniform in service to our country. A brief mention of my military experience could begin with: In 1963 I said "YES" to President Kennedy's insiration to serve the nation. I competed for and won an appointment to the USAF Academy (Class of 1969). There I joined young men learning leadership, as well as taking trainings with 1. Army Airborne, 2. alongside Navy SEALS, and, 3. deeply realistic Air Force P.O.W. leadership trainng. Some good friends were Marines. I was trained to recognize the risks and capabilities of members of all the uniformed services. The 1960s and 1970s were times of unimaginable transitions in the experience of those men and women who wore uniforms. Now that our nation is still in a state of declared war, I feel humbled when I am in the presence of men and women who are active military or in the Post 9/11 veteran ranks.
