Diet Intervention and Autism

Overview

"There is much medical and scientific research (as well as a wealth of evidence from parents of autistic children), that children and adults with autism and related disorders benefit considerably from a gluten free and casein (milk protein) free diet. These findings persuaded a sceptical Marilyn Le Breton to try the diet with her autistic son, Jack. The diet proved very successful and changed the lives of both Jack and the rest of the family."

Overview

"There is much medical and scientific research (as well as a wealth of evidence from parents of autistic children), that children and adults with autism and related disorders benefit considerably from a gluten free and casein (milk protein) free diet. These findings persuaded a sceptical Marilyn Le Breton to try the diet with her autistic son, Jack. The diet proved very successful and changed the lives of both Jack and the rest of the family." "This is the book that Marilyn wishes had been available to her when she first began the diet with Jack. The book explains in layman's terms what the diet involves, those foods that need to be excluded from the diet and those which are safe to use. It addresses frequently asked questions and mis-conceptions about the diet, such as "Is the diet too difficult and time consuming?" "How strict do you need to be?" "Is the diet expensive to implement?". The book gives practical advice on how to implement the diet, what to expect when you begin the diet, how to adapt family meals and how to minimise gluten and casein creeping into the diet. There is a wide selection of recipes, an extensive list of suppliers of specialist food in the UK and suggestions of where to look for further information. This is the first book of its kind to be written specifically for those living in the UK." "Marilyn's own experience and sensible approach ensure that this book will be invaluable for any parent of an autistic child or adult, who wishes to implement the diet."--BOOK JACKET.
