Experienced in complex needs
Early in my practice I followed the research and best practice in the nutritional support of children with autism and ADHD and adults with fatigue conditions and Alzheimer's dementia and have worked to stay at the forefront of knowledge in this area.
In 2010 I trained with the most knowledgeable autism nutrition practitioners in The United States: Dana Laake, Liz Lipski, Kelly Barnhill, Peta Cohen and Vicki Kobliner and returned to The United States in September 2018 to the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (MAPS) conference in Atlanta. I aim to return regularly to continue updating my knowledge.
