November 3, 2015 Talk About…Treating Autism with Dr. Julie Buckley

Come and learn from Dr. Julie Buckley, a physician dedicated to treating individuals with autism. Dr. Buckley will discuss biomedical treatments and lab testing for children with autism and devote a portion of her time with us to Q&A. Additionally, she will present “Caring for the Caregiver” which will contain information aimed at parents. Treating children with autism is a focus of Dr. Buckley’s practice and writing. Helping their parents be as healthy as possible is another area of great importance to Dr. Buckley and to TACA. This presentation will help parents be able to stay healthy, themselves, through the autism journey.

A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine and of the Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami Pediatric Residency Program, Dr. Buckley implemented an integrative/functional medicine approach into her pediatric practice after her daughter regressed into the world of autism at four years of age. In October 2009, she added Breast Cancer Survivor to her resume, using this integrative/functional medicine approach. An international speaker on these topics, she has written Healing Our Autistic Children in 2010 and Your Comprehensive Guide to Breast Cancer in 2013, is founder and President of the HealthyUNow Foundation, and is raising two children with the help of a wonderfully supportive family.
