Advanced Learning & Development Institute, invites you to become a part of a revolutionary concept in learning. After 28 years of research Dr. Corinne Allen has developed an advanced, hi tech, effective, and powerful learning program. This advanced learning concept is not like other programs for improving learning, academics, behaviors, social and emotional issues. This program does not involve rote memory or repeated therapies to achieve its outstanding results. This training program is a unique, revolutionary concept. It addresses re-education of the auditory, visual, tactile, olfactory, emotional, motor, and speech pathways in the brain. The retraining process centers on individual issues and training protocols where areas of the brain are not communicating and need stimulation for these neuro connections to grow or be unblocked. This program gets to the root of the issues.

Autism Treatment Center of America - Mr. Kaufman, CEO of the Autism Treatment Center of America™, will provide concrete, bold strategies you can implement now for your child’s immediate gain. As a child, Mr. Kaufman was diagnosed with severe autism and recommended for lifelong institutionalization. Instead, his parents developed The Son-Rise Program, which enabled their son to completely recover from his autism. Now an international speaker and Ivy League graduate with a degree in Biomedical Ethics, Mr. Kaufman bears no traces of his former condition (and is the subject of a book and movie). His lecture focuses on some innovative, outside-the-box techniques you can use today to help your child: move beyond stimming (without you stopping or discouraging your child’s behavior), learn new skills (without you having to push or pressure), and, most especially, to form meaningful, caring relationships with others.

Body Ecology - To date, attempts to solve autism focus on the use of supplements and various therapies to correct the disorder (and its milder forms, including Asperger's syndrome, ADD, ADHD and ODD). And yes, diet is key: the recommended gluten-free, casein-free diet has proven to be extremely valuable. But while health-care professionals can be commended for their sincere attempt to find a more natural solution to the problem, they are meeting with only limited success. The missing piece needed to solve the mystery of autism lies deep within the intestinal walls. The Body Ecology Diet shows you how to restore and maintain the important "inner ecology" your body needs to function properly and to eliminate or control the symptoms that rob you of the joy of living.

Wisconsin Integrative Hyperbaric Center; or as many call it " A Place of Grace " was created because of a little girl by the name of " Gracie" whose life was saved by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Gracie's life until the age of three consisted of the world's best hospitals and limited time at home with her family. At the age of 3 years old Gracie was blind, failing to thrive, and fed through a feeding tube (she weighed 11 pounds at age 3); she suffered from seizures, infantile spasms, and underwent several surgical procedures. Gracie's family researched Hyperbaric Therapy for over a year and though the research showed nothing for children with Mitochondrial Disorders, Gracie showed many of the same characteristics as a CP and TBI Children. Gracie's real journey began here, after mainstream medicine offered little hope for Grace. Hyperbaric medicine was her last chance for life. HBOT not only saved Gracie's life, but gave her back to her family.
