FREE Webinar: The Gluten-Free Link: ADHD, Autism & Celiac Disease


Join NFCA as Marie-Nathalie Beaudoin, PhD, Training Director at Bay Area Family Therapy & Training Associates, returns to the NFCA webinar platform to offer parents and healthcare providers new insights on the link between behavioral disorders like ADHD, autism spectrum disorders and celiac disease in a lively 60-minute review of the current academic literature.

Marie-Nathalie will:

  • Provide a summary of recent key research on the connections between the autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
  • Share patient case studies relevant to the webinar’s topic, helping to bridge the gap between research and real-life applicability.
