Upcoming Workshops & Training Sessions
ASI/ASWNY Spring Workshop
“A Fresh Look At Autism:
A Revolutionary Approach”
Featuring Dr. Martha Herbert, M.D., Ph.D.
Author of The Autism Revolution
Saturday, April 18, 2015
8:45 a.m.- 12:45 p.m.
Classics V Conference & Banquet Center
Dr. Martha Herbert, M.D., Ph.D. is a Harvard Medical School Researcher and Pediatric Neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, and author of “The Autism Revolution.” This workshop will examine new research that offers a scientific basis for hope in the treatment of autism. These findings support the view that much of autism arises not from a “broken brain,” but from series of obstructions that get in the way of the talents that lie within. Dr. Herbert’s revolutionary view suggests that autism is not so much hardwired as generated moment by moment in a dynamic, active processes created by challenges to cellular function throughout the body and brain that impact communication and behavior as well as metabolism, digestion, the immune system, and more. Parents and professionals will learn how to reduce brain overload and increase brain resiliency in individuals with ASD. This workshop is geared for both professionals and parents.
