TREATING AUTISM ROADSHOW, LIVERPOOL
An Exciting Event for Autism Parents – next stop Liverpool
Cotton Exchange, Bixteth Street,
Liverpool, Merseyside L3 9LQ
10am-2pm Monday 21 May 2018
We are delighted to announce the eighth 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).
Nutritional Strategy for Autism
Lucy Malone, Dip ION, BANT, CNHC
Lucy will discuss why nutrition is so important to children and adults on the autism spectrum. She will present an overview of a nutritional therapy approach to improving health for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), including identifying potential contributing factors, relevant tests to help do so, nutritional and dietary changes, as well as supplements that may improve common issues such as sleep, digestion, anxiety and behaviour, and some tips and tools to get you started.
Scents and Sensibility
Learn how a simple therapy accessing the sense of smell can impact the limbic system in the brain which supports a variety of functions including emotion, behaviour, appetite, motivation and long term memory. You will learn how and why this therapy works and how to do it at home, facilitating changes in function in the areas mentioned.
Treating Autism is a Journey—One Family’s Story.
Joshua’s mum Siobhan will share her autism journey so far, using a Verbal Behaviour ABA therapy approach along other interventions including nutrition, biomedical, craniosacral and BIRD, resulting in Joshua coping well in full time mainstream education following a tribunal battle with her Local Education Authority.
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.
