Autism: Causes, Characteristics, Actions

Monday, June 8 - 9:00 AM

As a professional practitioner of Functional Medicine and an autism pioneer in behavioral & social skills patterninga pathfinder to the best schooling environments, an occupational adviser and independent living mentor for the past 30 years and diagnosed personally with autism, who advocates for multi-age and diverse Special Needs Youths, my aspiration is to channel my competence and educational training into Coaching, Mentoring, Teaching Young People who struggle Academically, Intellectually, Developmentally and Emotionally. Having achieved mastery over my autistic social and neuro-atypical obstacles, my expertise lies in improving the quality of the day-to-day lives of individuals who struggle with these deficits in their home, job or classroom while focusing on their abilities and capabilities, learning to recognize and navigate their characteristics, discuss protocols, discover current theories on causes on why it is a spectrum, determine how to prepare students for careers and independence as well as how to capitalize on their strengths. Here are some of the questions to be addressed: 

* What are the causes: Environment, Diet, Shots, Genetics, Epigenetics?
* Why is it escalating? * What are the characteristics?
* What can be done to circumnavigate the behaviors?
* Why it is a spectrum?
* What Life Skills are needed to survive and thrive?
* Can all young adults become independent?
* Are schools preparing autistic youths with life skills? School Professionals untrained leaving students unprepared?
* What are the ramifications when reaching adulthood?
* What kinds of trouble do autistic young adults face or get into because of their lack of skills?
* How do you capitalize on their strengths?
* What is their employment potential?
* Business/Industry Prepared for the influx?
* How can employers capitalize on autistic strengths?
* Is it ever too late to learn new skills?
