3rd Annual Treat Conference – April 21st, 2012
Emerging Trends in biomedical treatment of Autism, PDD, AD/HD, OCD and Tourette’s Syndrome
Location – Corpus Christi High School, Burlington, ON, Canada
Dr. Julie Buckley, MD
Dr. Buckley, MD, is a pediatrician and author of Healing Our Autistic Children. Dr. Buckley became interested in biomedical treatment after her daughter regressed into the world of autism at 4 years old. Last year, she inspired and impressed conference attendees with her knowledge and expertise on biomedical research and treatments. We are delighted to have Dr. Buckley back as a keynote speaker! At our upcoming 2012 conference, Dr. Buckley will focus on emerging trends in biomedical treatment.
Dr. Patricia Fink, Optometrist
Dr. Fink completed her Bachelor of Science (Biology) in 1991 from McMaster University and my Doctor of Optometry Degree from The New England College of Optometry, Boston, US in 1995. She is certified to practice optometry in Ontario and British Columbia and also have has her certification in Treatment and Management of Ocular Disease including all three board examinations required for practice in the US. Dr. Fink is passionate about working with children experiencing developmental concerns like ASD, ADD, ADHD and dyslexia. She uses a cutting edge treatment called vision therapy to improve visual processing.
Jackie McMillan, B.E.S
Jackie McMillan has been helping people enjoy getting healthier for over 25 years. As an autistic child Jackie realized that some environments and actions (whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual) made her challenges worse, while others made them dramatically better. Two years of pre-medical and a degree in environmental studies brought depth and a passionate understanding that her discoveries could improve life for everyone. Individuals, families, child development centres, hospitals, boards of education, advisory committees, and others continue to benefit from Jackie’s help in finding their own best paths toward optimal well-being. Jackie’s presentation is a must see for all parents as she openly and honestly discusses the most challenging times in her life and how altering the quality of her food and surrounding environment helped bring her out of the “fog” of autism.
