NUHS Offers CE Course on Treating Patients with Autism

National University is proud to feature successful graduate, Dr. Janet Lintala (’94), in an exciting new continuing education course: “Overview of Autism Spectrum Disorders and Natural Treatments for Supporting Vibrant Health on the Spectrum”.

The one-day course, held on Sunday, March 1, 2015 from 8am to 6pm, offers 8 hours of CE credit.

The CDC estimates that 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with some form of autism spectrum disorder, and shows statistics that this number is growing.  If you have a family practice, you will undoubtedly encounter patients with a child in their family that could benefit from natural interventions that may reduce symptoms of this disorder.

Dr. Janet Lintala is an expert on treating patients with autism, and runs an autism-based practice in West Virginia that boasts a six-month waiting list that draws from a ten-state area thanks to her effective protocols.

Dr Lintala brings a multi-faceted approach to patients with autism, helping to restore function and reduce symptoms that accompany this diagnosis. She credits her broad-scope training at National for giving her the skills she’s used to develop this successful practice.

In the video below, you’ll hear why Dr. Lintala chose National for her DC degree, and how she first works on identifying gastro-intestinal imbalances when helping autism patients reduce and manage symptoms of their disorder. For a complete course outline and registration information, click here.
