A talk by Sharon Vallone. Families usually arrive at your door already enmeshed in a network of healthcare providers each working with the child and family on optimizing function and quality of life from their unique professional perspective. And as a family chiropractor, you could also be their portal of entry into that same network if your skill set helps them identify developmental concerns and directs them to colleagues with specific expertise with children on the autism spectrum. Building your trusted network of healthcare providers in different fields that you can communicate with and collaborate successfully is already, most likely, something you've accomplished professionally. Expanding that network to include individuals who work predominantly with this unique population of children and adults (because we all grow up!) will help build your knowledge base and confidence and allow you to provide wholistic support in addition to your chiropractic care to your patients as well as give much needed support and comfort to parents, who already know and trust you, as they explore all the options available for their precious child in a world that can seem overwhelming, opportunistic, expensive and frightening.
