About Autism & ADHD
Both Autism and ADHD are neurodevelopmental conditions that affect the child’s ability to relate to others and the world around them. They are diagnostic labels, but they do not tell us why your child is experiencing these difficulties. Why is your child constantly fidgety, why cannot he attend to instructions? Why does he or she show little interest for other children? Why do you see so many behavioural outbursts? Why does he or she needs to be engaged in limited repetitive and sensory behaviours?
These are the questions we aim to answer. The answers will not come from knowing about the diagnosis of Autism or ADHD, they will come from providing a full assessment of the child’s health.
Is she experiencing some food intolerances or allergies?
Is his gut affected causing him to have attention issues and behavioural outburst?
Does she lack in essential nutrients?
Does he have any form of inflammation that could affect his brain functioning?
Does she has some infection issues, viral or bacterial, or parasitic?
Is there any metabolic issue?
Is there any genetic susceptibilities or disorder?
Autism Treatment Plan
The programme I propose unfold in 4 stages or milestones:
Milestone 1: In a consultation we assess your child’s current situation, developmental history, diet, clinical presentation, the issues you face with any challenging behaviours, the child’s communication needs.
Milestone 2: We provide access to biomedical testing. We can provide a very comprehensive range of tests, all of which can initiated in the comfort of your home. Samples are sent to reputable labs for analysis. We use labs in the US, UK, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland.
Milestone 3: We initiate the first stage of restoring greater health with an initial focus on the diet. Our role is not so much to tell you what to feed your child, though we would do this, but we will tell you how to do this. The difficulty with self-restricted diet and sensory issues is for the child to accept a broad balanced healthy diet. We will assist you, one step at a time to achieve this goal.
Milestone 4: We implement gradually a full nutritional support to address all your child’s needs.
