Dr. Keri Chiappino Hosts Awareness Lecture on Holistic Therapies for Autism Symptoms
Presentation Offers Hope for a Drug-Free Life for the 1 in 68 Affected by Autism
“Building a Better Brain with Neurofeedback”
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 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/
