GEORGE (May 2017) – Two internationally accredited specialists will visit George on 9 & 10 June 2017 to consult with parents of special needs children.
The NPO Binah strive to support parents of special needs children and is, therefore, facilitating the visit of Dr Louise Lindenberg and Kath Megaw to George. Lindenberg and Megaw will consult privately with interested parents on 9 June 2017 and will address parents on relevant topics at Up with Downs on 10 June 2017. What makes this extraordinary is that it will be the first time that these two specialists work together and that parents will be able to get their expert advice during one event!
Dr Lindenberg is passionate about working with children with developmental challenges, including Autism, ADHD and behavioural problems. Kath Megaw is a Clinical Dietitian & Founder of Nutripaeds. Kath is a Clinical Dietitian (with specialist experience in Paediatric and special needs Dietetics). They will consult privately with patients on 9 June 2017 from 08:00 until 16:00 at Legacy Centre. On Saturday 10 June 2017 both specialists will spend the morning with parents from 09:00 until 12:00 at Up with Downs discussing relevant topics. The cost is R50pp and this includes tea, coffee and snacks.
Dr Lindenberg runs an integrated medical practice based in Durbanville, Cape Town and she also consults Johannesburg on a regular basis. She incorporates dietary intervention, supplementation, nutrition, phytotherapy / herbal medicine, and allopathic medicine in a holistic health care environment. She has had extensive training in the biomedical approach to treating children on the Autistic Spectrum to be able to optimise the outcome for children with developmental delays. Dr Lindenberg will speak about “Optimising Neurological Functioning in Challenged Children” on the morning of 10 June 2017.
The NPO Binah (Understanding) creates awareness for children with special needs in order for society to better understand and accept them. The challenges families with special needs children face is something the founder members of Binah themselves lived through as they raised their autistic sons. The Legacy Centre offers a one to one tutoring facility and aftercare, geared to teach special needs children in a familial environment.
