Diet

Diet has a profound impact on the well being and behaviour of children with autism and other related conditions such as ADHD, and immune illnesses such as asthma, allergies, eczema, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease.

Exactly how the diet may help will vary from child to child but if your child is a responder. In our opinion, 80% of children respond favourably to a dietary modification. The improvements may include improved bowel habit, general health and well being, appetite and weight regulation, improved behaviours and sleep patterns, eye contact, speech and sensory issues.

The child may go through a stage of worsening behaviours when the offending foods are removed. This is known as the ‘withdrawal’ stage.
