Most children on the Autism spectrum (67% and more) respond well to being on a GF/CF (gluten and casein free) diet. Children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) have irritated intestines with or without hyperpermeability ("leaky gut").
They often need high doses of probiotics and elimination of sugar intake to help heal the gut inflammation and infections. Anti-fungals may sometimes be needed as an early step in treatment.
