An Exciting Event for Autism Parents - next stop Bristol
We are delighted to announce the third 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.
Easy Nutritional Strategies for Autism. Lucinda Miller, Naturopath, Biomedical Specialist
Simple ways of improving health and behaviours in children and adults on the autism spectrum. Lucinda Miller, Family Naturopath, will show you some simple nutritional tools to help improve sleep, digestion and reduce negative behaviours. See how simple diet changes and food supplements can make a positive difference to health and quality of life.
An Introduction to Intensive Interaction. Sara Moroza-James
Sara Moroza-James, Intensive Interaction Coordinator, Teacher and Mother of Tom who has autism, will share her thoughts on how Intensive Interaction dramatically improved life for her son. "Not only did I.I. make him sociable, improve his language, communication and play skills, it also gave us our boy back and, therefore improved quality of life for the whole family. And the most amazing thing is - he loves it!" Based on natural parent-child interactions, I.I. is easy to do yet has profoundly positive consequences for children with autism. It is highly respectful of the child, yet simultaneously works on the very core of their diagnosis and makes life easier, richer and better for them as a result.
Treating Autism is a Journey - One Family's Story
Jill will share the story of her son, who experienced regression, and, by the age of 2, had a full array of autism problems. Jill's extensive experience of diets, biomedical protocols and supplements, as well as educational interventions (ABA and DIR/Floortime) helped improve his health and well-being, and the quality of life for him and all the family. Jill is passionate about raising awareness of providing appropriate interventions from an early age and is involved in various support groups and initiatives, helping parents in her local community.
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 Spectrum Supplements for enabling us to provide a much-needed socializing opportunity for parents that will follow the presentations.
