Outsmarting Autism

6:00 - 8:00 PM
Tatnuck Booksellers
18 Lyman Avenue
Westborough, MA

Speaker: Patricia Lemer
We are honored to host Patricia Lemer, author of Outsmarting Autism. Her second book expands on the first to demonstrate ways to build healthy foundations. Newly revised and updated, this user-friendly guide addresses autism identification, treatment, and prevention from pre-conception through adulthood. Outsmarting Autism describes more than 50 practical approaches with proven efficacy, including lifestyle modification, dietary considerations, and boosting the immune system. After health improves, focus turns to developing the sensory foundations for communication, social skills, and learning.
Patricia S. Lemer is a licensed professional counselor, holding a Masters of Education in counseling and learning disabilities from Boston College and a Masters in Business from Johns Hopkins University. She practiced as an educational diagnostician for over 40 years. She was a co-founder and served as Executive Director of the international non-profit organization Developmental Delay Resources.
