Dr. Keri Chiappino Announces ’08 Presentation Slate for Hemispheric Imbalances Associated with Autism and Learning Disorders
January 14, 2008
(Smithtown, N.Y.) Chiropractic Neurologist Dr. Keri Chiappino announced today her upcoming schedule of presentations aimed at helping parents of children with hemispheric imbalances better understand the neurological basis for their child’s condition. The workshops specifically address non-pharmacological therapy options for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) including Asperger’s Syndrome, as well as Attention Deficit Disorder/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Tourette’s Syndrome, Dyslexia, and other learning disabilities.
According to Dr. Chiappino, “Parents are often overwhelmed by the myriad of therapies recommended for their children. Many times medication is the only treatment method that is offered to treat their child’s symptoms. Medication controls symptoms without getting to the root of the problem. If the brain has reduced metabolic rates, medication will increase them, but if you remove the medication, the problem will return. By far, the majority of children and adults do very well without a stimulant medication if the patient is under the care of a Chiropractic Neurologist trained to improve the imbalances that are apparent in these conditions . The presentations I am offering are in a sense awareness workshops designed to educate parents on the cause of their child’s disability and how neurological balance can be restored — without resorting to medication.”
The free workshop series is conducted monthly on Monday evenings from 7:15 – 8:00 pm at Dr. Chiappino’s Smithtown office 323 Middle Country Road, Smithtown. Kicking off the series on Monday January 14, 2008 is a presentation on ADD/ADHD. The following is the schedule for the remainder of the year:
