Description

One in every 88 children is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder!
This epidemic prevalence makes autism one of the most common developmental disabilities in the United States. Children with autism are at risk for many nutrition problems, such as nutritional deficiencies, drug/nutrient interactions, food allergies, food intolerances, chemical sensitivities, gastrointestinal disorders, and feeding problems.

Parents are increasingly utilizing diet and nutritional supplements, which they learn about from support groups, the press, the Internet, and other non-medical sources, but they need guidance from professionals to help them through the maze of emerging nutrition information. Unfortunately, most professionals do not feel prepared to assist parents in this area of treatment. Dietitians, educators, therapists, and other health care professionals seek reliable information so they can assist parents in making informed decisions regarding appropriate nutrition and feeding interventions.

This one-day seminar is designed to provide the most authoritative, current, scientific-based information on nutrition and feeding interventions for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, PDD-NOS, and other related disorders. Participants will leave the seminar with the knowledge, strategies, and resources to help families make informed decisions regarding diet, nutritional supplements, and feeding problems. All professionals and parents wanting a better understanding of the role of nutrition therapy in the treatment of autism and related disorders will benefit from attending this seminar.
