Fight or Flight: Adrenal Dysregulation in Children with ASD

10:00 - 11:45 AM
Panera
650 Main Avenue
Norwalk, CT

Speaker: Lindsey Wells, ND
Cortisol is a hormone released by the adrenal glands to help the body respond to stress. Children with ASD tend to be in constant “fight or flight” mode due to emotional, social, environmental, and physiological stressors. These stressors result in dysfunctional hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis contributing to abnormal cortisol patterns in children with ASD. Research has shown that abnormal cortisol patterns in children with ASD leads to sleep disturbances, increases stress and sensory sensitivities, and interferes with sociability. Older children with ASD tend to be more affected by abnormal cortisol levels. Learn about safe and effective natural treatments to address cortisol dysregulation in children. RSVP so we can save you a seat!
