The Gluten-Free/Casein-Free (GFCF) Diet, as well as removing all artificial dyes and preservatives, have proven to be very successful for autistic children in removing many of their autism traits and symptoms. This work provides a detailed account of why this special diet and other interventions should be implemented.
Parents of children on the Autism Spectrum are constantly searching for new innovations, and a new diet is showing extraordinary results. The Gluten-Free/Casein-Free (GFCF) Diet, as well as removing all artificial dyes and preservatives, have proven to be very successful for autistic children in removing many of their autism traits and symptoms. A breakthrough of hope for parents, “The Autism Diet” is the new tool in the fight against autism.
“In a ”nutshell,“ I thought it was an excellent reference book. I, myself, have tried to use this diet in the past but found it an overwhelming task. Barrie, however, gives you a step by step guide to make your implementation of the diet much easier .....what foods, where to buy foods, and how to stay on the diet while eating out, vacationing, and even for a hospital stay. I certainly recommend adding this book to your personal library.” - Parenting Special Needs Magazine
