Dr Goldsmith was an advisor to the EU parliamentary disabilities commission in Brussels, she introduced biomedical Intervention to Ireland in 2004 and appeared on the RTE award winning Irish documentary on Austism, “The Lion in the Room.” Dr Goldsmith is currently involved in reform in Ireland of the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of child and adult neuro psychological conditions including Autism, ASD and ADHD.

There will also be experts ranging from psychiatrists speaking on the role of medication and psychologists speaking on the role of behaviour strategies as well as innovative local therapists, which will be available to speak and advise parents in a confidential and private manner.
