Is the GFCF Diet a Good Fit?
Parents really are yearning for information on how to help their child with ASD. We've been talking about 'awareness' for so long. It's no wonder that Parents are fearful, saying "if I wait for 'science' to provide the data, it will be too late. My child will be grown. I have to know something now. I have decisions to make now!" This is heart-wrenching. It is time to move research from the bench and into communities to support Parents. Education is key for Parents and Caregivers.
Here's an excellent article. "The Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Diet in Autism: An Overview with Clinical Implications" (Dec 2008). It goes directly to the research and can help you decide if the GFCF diet is a good plan for your family. Now you can weigh the pros and cons with good information. Read on! You'll be glad you did.
