SMITHTOWN, N.Y. - April 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Autism is on the rise in the U.S.  The CDC now estimates that 1 in 68 children are currently diagnosed with this neurobiological disorder, an increase of almost 30% from just two years ago.  In recognition of Autism Awareness Month, Dr. Keri Chiappino DC, DACNB BCN, is hosting an educational workshop on non-drug therapies to combat symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) for those seeking holistic healing therapies for their children.

“Building a Better Brain with Neurofeedback” will be held Monday, April 21 at 7:30pm in the New Life Wellness Center’s Smithtown office.  The lecture will address the repetitive behaviors frequently exhibited by those on the spectrum, commonly referred to as “stimming” as well as impulsivity and other behavioral issues (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0Hpe7isOkM).   Parents and caregivers will gain an understanding of why their child adopts specific ritualistic behaviors and learn about tools to better manage symptoms.

According to Dr. Chiappino, “Underlying brain-wave dysregulation often triggers rocking, hand flapping, spinning and other repetitive behaviors seen in those individuals with autism.  While these behaviors may help reduce external stress when the sensory world becomes overwhelming, they tend to be disruptive and become an obsessive ritual that interferes with learning and socialization. Brain-based exercises, such as neurofeedback can help retrain these abnormal brain-wave patterns and help overcome stimming, spinning and swaying.  Diet and nutritional supplementing also play an important role in the overall therapy plan.”

  “My lecture is aimed at those who are concerned with the side effects of psychotropic drugs or who wish an alternative vzmkg to a lifetime dependence on these medications.   Parents and caregivers will learn there is a viable, effective and evidence-based path toward achieving a child’s optimal learning potential that is natural, produces no negative side effects and can be long-lasting.”

Reservations are required as seating is limited.  A $10 lecture fee is requested at registration which will be donated in its entirety to benefit a local Special Education Parent Teachers Association (SEPTA).   All attendees will be entered into a raffle for a free QEEG (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrNk2pdpw9o) (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map session ($150 value).  Call the office at 631.265.1223 to reserve your seat.
