Judith Bluestone: The Fabric of Autism: Weaving the Threads into a Cogent Theory
In this dynamic multipart series we join Judith Bluestone to gain clarity through her gift of simplifying the many interrelated and often misinterpreted aspects of the Autism Spectrum. Judith, the renowned developer of the HANDLE approach and host Christopher De Michele, along with a cadre of practitioners, educators, parents, guardians, celebrity guests, and audience participants share and discover the foundations, evolutions, and case studies of HANDLE that breed hope through proven results. This is a cumulative and sequential series wherein you will learn of solutions focused on relieving the causes of ASD, not merely modifying behaviors. Join us for insights that untangle and re-weave the “The Fabric of Autism”.

Tami Duncan : The Lyme and Autism Connection
With autism numbers at such a high level, the amount of children infected with Lyme disease parallels this epidemic. It is estimated that up to 90% of children with autism also are infected with Lyme disease. The International Lyme and Associated Disease Society states that Autism and ADHD is one of the disorders that Lyme Disease can mimic. The symptoms of Lyme Disease are the same as those of autism. The Lyme and Autism Connection will explore testing, treatment options and how we can help our children begin to heal.
