Default Service Dog Organization Near MD

I have a friend whose son has Mosaic Kleinfelters Syndrome and also suffers from febrile seizures. "Children with Mosaic KS may have learning disabilities and delayed speech and language development. They tend to be quiet, sensitive, and unassertive, but personality characteristics vary among affected individuals. " -
Klinefelter syndrome - Genetics Home Reference

I'm not 100% of the extent her son has though. They are considering getting a service dog to see if that helps him. They are located in Southern MD. Any advice on where to look or who to contact would be very helpful. It seems the wait is very long.

Does anyone with experience recommend looking for a dog in the shelter to train to become a service dog? Is that more cost effective?

What types of characteristics should they look for in a SD?

Thanks so much!

Deanna
