Working in partnership with your child’s school with Dr Samantha Hornery

You’re in this together!

You and your child’s teachers need to be working alongside each other throughout your child’s education to ensure your child can enjoy school, participate in school and finish school ready to take on their next adventure.

Many things will change throughout your child’s schooling – their teachers at least once a year, their school at least once – but what remains constant is you, their parent and holder of all the knowledge and history of your child’s successful experiences in learning.

In this workshop Samantha will provide practical strategies to help parents and schools work together in partnership, to divvy up the support and help each other help the child at the centre of this relationship.

Cooking for ADHD/ASD, Gut Health & Optimum Nutrition with Jo Whitton

Cooking for ADHD/ASD, Gut Health, Allergies, Food Intolerances & Optimum Nutrition with Jo Whitton of Quirky Cooking

More details to follow.

About Jo Whitton

Jo lives in Far North Queensland, Australia, where she manages her business, Quirky Cooking, and enjoys the country life. Due to food intolerances and health issues in her family (herself and her four children), Jo began researching ways to improve their health through diet from the time her kids were very young.

In 2014 she published her best-selling Quirky Cooking cookbook, and began teaching allergy-friendly cooking seminars. However, about this time her son Isaac was diagnosed with severe OCD and anxiety, and Jo’s mission to help her son heal naturally began.

As Jo learnt more about the importance of a healthy gut for reducing inflammation and healing both physical and mental health issues, she began to focus specifically on traditional, healing foods and ‘food as medicine’, rather than just avoiding allergy-friendly cooking to reduce allergies and reactions. Not only did Isaac’s mental health stabilise, but her whole family saw massive improvements in their overall health.

In 2017, Jo published her second best-selling cookbook, ‘Life-Changing Food’ as a collaboration with Fouad Kassab (food writer and whole food chef). In her third cookbook, ‘Simple, Healing Food’, Jo takes a deeper dive into gut health and culinary medicine, and shares practical ways to transition to the traditional, healing, whole food diet that helped her and her family so much.

Jo loves helping families reduce the overwhelm caused by chronic health issues, guiding them towards simple diet and lifestyle changes that will heal and nourish, one small step at a time.

This talk will be highly relevant to adults with ADHD, parents & family members as well as health professionals working with children/teens with ADHD/ASD and indeed anyone who has food sensitivities/intolerances/allergies or gut health issues or who loves delicious food!

Professionals attending will receive a Certificate of Attendance to help them keep track of their professional development.
