It’s no secret that autism is a widely prevalent and growing diagnosis among our nation’s children. The latest estimates saw a 15% increase in autism diagnoses in just two years, and this on top of ongoing, significant increases every year for more than a decade. In the 2018 estimates by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, overall prevalence went from 1 in 166 children (2004) to 1 in 59 children (2018).
These findings have very practical implications for all areas of healthcare. Consider this:
- You are most likely treating one or more patients on the autism spectrum right now.
- If you aren’t directly treating any patient with autism, you are almost certainly treating someone who has a close relative with autism.
- Though the national average is 1 in 59 children, some areas have much higher diagnosis rates. The highest-incidence state is New Jersey (1 in 34).
- Autism is a lifelong condition for most people, though services for adults, and even prevalence estimates, are sorely lacking.
- Autism often comes with other, complex medical needs.
All these facts add up to a HUGE need for effective treatments. Though no cure exists, acupuncture can improve many outcomes for people with autism. With the right skills and understanding, you can touch many lives for the better.
Are you Prepared to Make a Difference?
At this year’s AcuGrowth Symposium, we are very excited to welcome Dr. Charles Quigless. As an acupuncturist, father of an autistic son, and board member at Touch Points Autism Services, Dr. Quigless brings unique perspective and insight to the treatment of autism spectrum disorders.
His depth of personal experience in this field makes him a sought-after speaker and teacher. Join us as we learn the best ways to make a difference for the many, many people all around us on the autism spectrum.
Dr. Quigless is one of several speakers who will address the treatment of today’s tough conditions—the conditions that lead patients to turn to acupuncture when other forms of medicine have failed them.
To all those who have bought tickets for Acupuncture Growth Symposium 2019, we can’t wait to see you in May!
To those who are still considering attendance, just know that AcuGrowth 2019 will be an empowering and life-changing experience. We’d truly love to see you there.
In addition to learning about treating autism with acupuncture from Dr. Quigless, we’ll also be focusing on treating OTHER tough conditions that plague today’s patients, like Fibromyalgia, and emotional disorders.
