A good starting point would be H.S.A., Handicapped Scuba Association. They have a web page at: http://www.hsascuba.com/
Although they are focussed on indivuduals with physical disabilities, they would be an excellent resource for helping you tailor a program for indivuals with exceptional needs, how to work with the major training organizations, and how to meet training requirements.
Their web page also has a locator for H.S.A. certified instructors, so you should be able to find an individual in your area that may be interested in helping you get started.
Hope this helps.
