Join us at CARE (the Center for Autism Research and Education) as we host a support group for individuals with autism, ADD, Tourette's, and other special needs and their families who are looking for a community that shares knowledge, experience, and expertise. Led by Dr. Cindy Schneider, the Medical Director of CARE, each meeting will cover safe and effective treatments for the childhood epidemics of our time. Dr. Schneider's areas of expertise include the immune, gastrointestinal, and metabolic aspects of autism, ADD, Tourette's, and Down syndrome. She is on the faculty of MAPS, the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs, where she teaches physicians about advanced biomedical interventions for autism and related disorders. She has designed and implemented multiple research studies and is particularly interested in the effects of environmental toxins on development. Dr. Schneider and her guest lecturers will explore cutting edge treatment options and keep you up to date on new developments in the field of childhood developmental disorders.
