Want to Help Kids with Autism & ADHD?
Do want to offer alternatives to
support the Western medicine approach?
Are parents asking how acupuncture can help autism and ADHD? Do you WANT to help, but lack confidence in your treatments? Or feel unsure how to work with special needs kids?
It's OK! I can show you how to
use acupuncture to help these kids!
Kids with autism and ADHD can be the hardest to treat! Their condition may take years before it begins to shift on its own. Parents are usually frustrated, overwhelmed and unsure whether or not acupuncture can help! And to be honest, acupuncture isn't going to get instant results.
If you're like me, you didn't get ANY training on how to treat autism or ADHD in acupuncture school. You may feel like you don't know exactly how to approach these kids. And you may not know what to say when parents ask how well acupuncture works for these conditions.
But, if you hate seeing such high numbers of young children put on medications and you want to help you're in the right place. Acupuncture CAN help and emerging research can give us some direction on how to treat autism. We can harness the power of the Five Elements to guide our interaction and treatment of kids with ADHD. We can help them reach balance.
That's why I put together this course. I wanted to learn how to treat kids with autism and ADHD, so I delved in the research in both Chinese medicine and integrative treatments to figure out how I could help. In Introduction to Treating Autism and ADHD, I share everything I learned so you can help these kids, too!
In Introduction to Autism and ADHD you'll learn...
- How acupuncture can help
- TCM points and protocols
- How leaky gut and leaky brain play a role
- GFCF and GAPS diets and how to implement them
- Five Element phase typing for ADHD
- Diet, herbs, and nutritional supplements for treating the root
- How to develop a treatment plan to ensure longterm success
In this introductory course you'll get the complete East-West perspective so you'll feel confident understanding the treatments your patient is currently undergoing and how to best help him!
I'd be honored to be your guide as you learn how to treat autism and ADHD!

Here's What Partipants Are Saying
" I knew I needed training and support in order to successfully treat this demographic as well as provide a framework for how to educate parents. I now feel more confident in my ability to treat kids and teens. I have a language in which to explain to my patients and their parents how Chinese medicine can support them during this process. In addition, the Five Element Typing is a brilliant interactive tool that generates interest, curiosity and engagement from my patients and their families! I would definitely recommend this class to other acupuncturists and look foward to continuing to train with Robin!
-Kathleen Barber, L.Ac
I feel a lot more confident after taking this course in talking to parents about how acupuncture and tuina can make a difference in their child in these two areas. I have worked with a few of my patient's children over the years and really want to grow my pediatric practice. I like how Robin has a lot of information on how to share with parents the benefits of acupuncture and get them enrolled in choosing TCM for treatment and preventative care.
