Treating Autism Roadshow, Leeds
An Exciting Event for Autism Parents – next stop Leeds
St George’s Centre, 60 Great George Street, Leeds, LS1 3DL
10am-2pm Friday 3 November 2017
We are delighted to announce the sixth in our series of TA Roadshow events, with more to follow throughout the UK soon! Three wonderful professional and parent speakers will be sharing their knowledge, experience, and simple nutritional tools to help improve negative autism behaviours and symptoms and make a positive difference to your child’s health and quality of life. Only £10 including lunch (FREE to TA members or those who join on the day).
Nutrition and Biomedical Intervention for Autism
Anne Pemberton, MSc, PGCE(Autism)
Anne will provide you with an understanding of nutritional and lifestyle factors that can impact on your child’s behaviour, sleep, digestion and overall development. She will help you to see that by developing some simple strategies you may be able help your child overcome some of these difficulties. There are some non-invasive tests that can be undertaken to find the route causes of your child’s health challenges, and some simple and safe nutrients that can be given to improve your child’s quality of life. Anne will discuss both of these.
Understanding and Improving the Sensory Aspects of Autism
Alan R Heath BSc. (Hons) Psych.
It is well understood that Autism has a large sensory component. We need to process and organise sensory information well to be able to interact with our environment. Alan will explain how processing can be affected across the range of senses and how to understand behaviour in these terms. We will also discuss programmes and ideas to improve sensory processing. This can have benefit in a wide range of areas from sleep patterns, to continence and communication skills.
Treating Autism is a Journey—One Family’s Story
James’s mum Sharron will share her family experience of how dietary and biomedical intervention helped her son with severe autism, resulting in a remarkable improvement in his autism symptoms, health, and behaviours. You will get to hear what benefited James and how other parents were crucial in supporting the whole family both emotionally and practically on this journey.
There will be tea and coffee with snacks throughout the day. During the last hour we will offer lunch (included in the price, free to members) and there will be an opportunity for chatting informally to our speakers, TA team and other parents.
This event is aimed at parents new to autism and at those with more experience. If you know a family that could benefit from the information, please be sure to share these details with them.
We would like to thank the Big Lottery for funding our charity and enabling us to continue to support our community of parents. We would also like to thank our event sponsor Mandi Mart (www.mandimart.co.uk) for enabling us to provide a much-needed socializing opportunity for parents that will follow the presentations.
