October 15, 2009 — The American Chiropractic Autism Board (ACAB) is hosting the Hope for Autism BioNutritional Training Conference Nov. 13-15, 2009 in Charleston, S.C.
Hope for Autism (HFA) training will begin with chiropractic neurologist, Dr. Laura Hanson of Life University on the diagnosis and treatment of unilateral brain dysfunction and multi-sensory disintegration in children on the autism spectrum, including ADD and other neurodevelopmental conditions.
Doctors will get hands-on, practical tools to help them drive development in the areas of the brain most commonly affected. Other techniques include desensitizing the commonly hypersensitive nervous system to help prepare children on the autism spectrum for chiropractic adjustments.
Among the comprehensive topics covered at the conference, doctors will learn the scientific rationale behind BioNutritionalsm Care, how to utilize diagnostic tools and specialized laboratory testing to properly evaluate for the underlying cause of disease, nutritional and dietary interventions specific to autism, addressing heavy metal and other forms of toxicity, overcoming common obstacles in autism recovery and much more.
This conference will give chiropractors the knowledge, confidence, and support to be a leader in the community and offer hope that most patients won’t find anywhere else. Those who complete the training and pass the proficiency exam will be added to the HFA online referral directory. This course is sponsored by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and Cleveland Chiropractic College (CCC) and provides 20 hours of CCE credits.
