On the Letters page of the May/June issue of Neurology Now, you list Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) as a provider for Seizure Alert/Response dogs.

CCI is a nationwide nonprofit organization that provides highly trained assistance dogs for people with disabilities. Although we do not train our dogs specifically for seizure alert, we do not deny or discourage anyone from applying to the CCI Program. I recommend the Web site of Assistance Dogs International (ADI). ADI is a membership organization that assistance-dog providers may belong to. ADI does not train or place dogs, but their members do. Go to assistancedogsinternational.org . Click on “Regions” and then “Membership Directory/List and Links” to view a worldwide listing of their members. Since each member has their own guidelines for acceptance into their program, interested parties should contact them directly.
