We've been sharing presenters and events at the Autism One Generation Rescue conference throughout the Spring. This one is near and dear to my heart. Sarge Goodchild is the first person I met after Mia and Gianna were diagnosed who told me autism was treatable. He clued me in on the GFCF diet. I'd never heard of it. I credit Sarge with changing me from an allopathic medical consumer to a proactive Mother Warrior ready to accept responsibility for my children's health. I'll be introducing Sarge at his presentation on Saturday morning at 8am. Yes, it's early. But his program is worth your attention. It combines vision therapy, OT, PT and a whole lot of TLC and you can do the work at home, during playtime. Please join us.
Sarge Goodchild is the founder and executive director of Active Healing in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Sargent began life as a brain-injured child and by age 4 had developed severe epilepsy. Refusing the doctors' dire prognosis for her son's future, his mother implemented a neurological program and recovered him from seizures in nine months. Our nervous system is largely structured around the milestones we achieve in the first year of life. Sargent will discuss how to reconstruct the developmental process using functional movement and reflex integration. Sargent is a graduate of Syracuse University.
