Most of us know that good nutrition is important for optimal learning and mental health. This workshop will provide information why those on the spectrum are picky eaters and how to address their unique challenges – special diets; therapeutic nutrients that support motor planning of learning, executive function, and mood; how nutrition intervention at any age can improve function and quality of life; and much more! This workshop is geared for individuals with ASD, parents, and professionals
