Learn the Truth about Autism and Gifted Children

Jim and Archana Lal-Tabak, M.D.

The Neurodiversity Book Discussion Group will meet for a series of eight Monday classes from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. between October 19 and December 14 at the Heart of Transformation Wellness Institute, in Evanston.

The brightest, most creative children and adults are often being misdiagnosed with behavioral and emotional disorders such as ADD/ADHD, oppositional-defiant disorder, bipolar, OCD or Asperger’s syndrome. Many Twice-Exceptional (2E) children and adults may use medication as needed for a period of time and benefit from learning other natural strategies for coping that decrease unwanted long-term side effects of medications at higher doses using epigenetic/environmental changes.

The sessions are facilitated by Archana Lal-Tabak, M.D., an integrative medicine physician and psychiatrist, and Jim Lal-Tabak, a wellness educator, experiential tutor and yoga instructor. This guided discussion group will use the book Misdiagnosis and Dual Diagnoses of Gifted Children and Adults: ADHD, Bipolar, OCD, Asperger’s, Depression, and Other Disorders, by James Webb, Ph.D.


Cost: $30/class or $200 for all. Reduced fees, work study and scholarships are available. Location: 1618 Orrington Ave., Ste. 206, Evanston. RSVP to 847-425-9355 or [email protected]. For more information, visit
