Speakers appearing at The Kids Summit 2018
Dorte Bladt is the founder of Switched-on Kids. Throughout her career as a chiropractor, Dorte has loved providing gentle chiropractic care for babies and children. However, it was out of personal experience with her daughter that she developed a passion for helping children with learning and behavioural challenges. Dorte realised she needed to know and do more for these kids. She spent countless hours over many years studying topics such as neurology, child development, brain stimulation, sensory-motor integration, nutrition, supplementation, teaching approaches and chiropractic techniques.
She currently runs a busy family practice in Newcastle, Australia, caring mainly for babies and children. She has a special interest in children with learning, attention, coordination and behavioural challenges.
Dr. Claudia Anrig has been in full-time practice for the past 30 years and is the founder of the first comprehensive pediatric program and community outreach, Peter Pan Potential.
She also personally mentors chiropractors with a dream of growing their family wellness practice in the Generations coaching program. She is the past president of the ICPA and the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society.
She received the Chiropractor of the Year Award for 1997 from the World Chiropractic Association, Fellow of the International Chiropractic Association (ICA) in 1997, and Distinguished Service from the ICA in 1998.
Dr. Anrig’s textbook, Pediatric Chiropractic, is the first of its kind and is the fastest selling textbook in chiropractic history. The highly anticipated Second Edition was published in late 2012.
Dr. Monika Buerger is the pioneer in the chiropractic profession when it comes to working with children that have Neurosensory and Neurodevelopmental Disorders. She currently has a private family practice in Ammon, Idaho that is dedicated to serving those with neurodevelopmental challenges, neurodegenerative disorders and chronic health issues.
Dr. Buerger lectures nationally and internationally on neurophysiology, functional neurology, functional biochemistry/nutrition and neurofunctional development.
She is the founder of the Intersect4kids and Intersect4Life programs, www.intersect4life.com, whose mission is: “To prevent disease in the unborn child, to promote proper neurodevelopment in the new born and to create a life of optimal health for all.” She combines the four key systems of the body: neuroimmune, neurogastric, neuroendocrine and neurosensory and their relationship to chiropractic care as well as the “3 M’s”, methylation, mitochondria and metabolism, in order to obtain optimal physical and mental health with all patients.
