With 1 in 50 children now being diagnosed with autism and many more with ADHD, dyslexia, allergies and other auto immune conditions medical practitioners need to look beyond the labels and think about the causes. Here at the Special Kids Medical Clinic we take a functional medicine approach to a variety of complex conditions including autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders, tic disorders and Down Syndrome. We aim to optimise each patient’s nutritional status and ensure that key metabolic pathways are supported when necessary. As a mother of a child with autism spectrum disorder Amy offers both a personal and professional insight into your child’s unique condition.
From a full biomedical consultation to advice on sleep disturbance, gut issues or just simple advice on how to help support your child’s immune system we are here to help.
Whilst having a special interest in autism spectrum disorder we are here to help everyone. When opening the clinic focussed on children primarily but we are increasingly seeing adult patients who now which to heal their bodies using nutritional medicine. Prenatal planning is a focus for many patients but we also see patients with a variety of auto immune and gastrointestinal issues who wish to help heal their bodies using nutritional medicine. So whether your child has a diagnosis of ADHD, dyslexia, downs syndrome, allergies, type 1 diabetes, hypothyroidism, cerebral palsy or has no diagnosis at all we are here to help.
