The Leaky Gut and the Brain-Food, Attention, Behavior and Learning
Could your child’s struggles with attention, behavior, emotional stability and learning be as a result of a “Leaky Gut”?  With the ever growing introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMO), pesticides, hormones and various additives into the American diet, there has been an overwhelming amount of evidence based research linking intestinal health to neurobehavioral and neurodevelopmental disorders.  
    Dr. Worth will discuss the current trends regarding: gluten/wheat sensitivities, known cross-reactive foods, systemic inflammatory responses, as well as the action steps necessary to diagnose and rid your child of “Leaky Gut Syndrome”. Don’t miss this exciting presentation…it may be life changing.

Exploring the MIND With ADD, Autism, Learning Struggles, and More (Exhibitor workshop)
Buckle up, sit back and prepare for a journey into the MIND. Dr. Worth, the Chief Medical Consultant at the Midwest Institute for Neurological Development,  will guide you through the most common "teaching pitfalls" when working with children  ADD, Autism (ASD) and other learning struggles.  Recommendations and home-based tips that may prove beneficial for your learner will be covered.
Unfolding the Processing Disorder Diagnosis

“Is your child over-or-under sensitive to sound, touch, taste, or vision?”  “Do they struggle with reading, spelling, math or retaining information?” “Are they clumsy?”  If so, your child may suffer from a processing disorder.  Processing disorders are conditions that exist on a spectrum, where your brain has trouble receiving and responding to incoming information. During this session, Dr. Worth will discuss the current theories regarding the various processing disorders, and provide some home-based ideas to address these concerns.
