New BIOMED support group coming to the East Valley SOON!!
Dawn Winkelmann, speech and language goddess/feeding therapist and I are starting up a new biomed group for the East Valley. We plan to offer monthly (until we need to do more) classes that give hands on info on GFCFSF diets, ways to get supplements in kids, recipes, seasonal topics like back to school lunch ideas, GFCF holiday recipes, etc. We plan to have 1 hour lecture, 30 min Q & A and 30 min chit chat. I will have New Beginnings products on hand to try, we will have Dr. Woeller's Autism Action Plan on hand to check out and Dawn will be available to discuss private consults. We will start at the beginning, why is it important to adopt a GFCF and maybe even SF diet for your child? We will bring in each of the building blocks including a review of some of the biomedical challenges these children face to help parents truly understand the root causes of Autism and why these interventions are important. We will also provide tools (i.e. reputable doctors, therapists and supplements) to help support children who have Autism. It will be a Meet Up group online and we will meet at a local place (TBD). The dates have been set as the 2nd Thursday of the month from 7:00 - 9:00 pm beginning in September. We will have guest speakers, you will get to try recipes, we will share ideas and resources, offer hope and support. I will post the link to Meet up on my blog when we get it all set up. We hope to see you there!!!
