People with autism often are intolerant of gluten (a protein in four types of cereal) and casein (a protein found in animal milk). There are many testaments to the benefits for such people of a diet that excludes gluten, casein, monosodium glutamate and aspartame, and these persuaded Marilyn Le Breton to put her autistic son Jack on the diet, which he has significantly benefited from. In the updated and expanded edition of this highly successful book, Marilyn explains what the diet is all about and how it works, what foods can form part of the diet and what should be excluded. She addresses frequently asked questions and misconceptions, such as 'Is the diet too difficult and time-consuming? How strictly do I need to adhere to it? Is the diet expensive to implement?' and gives practical advice on basic equipment and ingredients, what to expect when your child starts the diet, how to adapt family meals and how to minimize cross-contamination in the kitchen. The book includes a wide selection of recipes, an extensive and up-to-date list of addresses and websites of suppliers of foodstuffs in the UK, and suggestions for finding out more information. invaluable for any parent of a child with autism, or any adult considering embarking on the diet.

Parents and professionals alike will find this book of use by virtue of Ken's meticulous reviews of current scientific evidence for a variety of diets combined with practical advice on the application of such interventions.' - Dr. Paul Whiteley, Autism Research Unit 'Dr. Aitken provides a timely synthesis of diet interventions in autistic spectrum disorders set within a framework of historical and political references. This informative work offers invaluable assistance to the wider clinical team, further enabling effective support and guidance to the ASD community in its quest for a healthy future.' - Rosemary Kessick, former CEO of AiA (Allergy Induced Autism) Research in autism increasingly indicates the existence of different forms of the condition, and the possibility of dietary interventions having a positive effect on symptoms and behaviours associated with autism. The author explores the main dietary approaches that have been advocated in ASD. For each approach, the author explores the potential benefits; evidence for and against the diet and its relation to different genetic conditions; and information, where available, on relevant publications, web resources and support groups. The author proposes an approach, the Simple Restriction Diet (SRD), which he describes in detail, explaining how to implement this approach and how to use it to work out whether a dietary approach is of benefit. This book will be a valuable resource for families, individuals and professionals wishing to understand and explore the possibilities of dietary interventions and the benefits they can have for those on the autism spectrum.

Autism represents one of the biggest health challenges facing children today. Whilst experts around the globe strive to unravel and truly understand how autism develops and presents itself, relatively little is still known about the condition. Meanwhile, strong evidence has emerged that the diet in children on the autistic spectrum can have a significant role to play in the management of their symptoms. A growing body of research reveals that some challenging characteristics present in autism may be positively affected by the introduction of a gluten- and casein-free (GFCF) diet. Autism: Exploring the benefits of a gluten and casein free diet offers an easy-to-read alternative to sifting through the science. Written by experts in autism research, food, nutrition and dietetics, the book cuts through the science-speak to offer readers a no-nonsense overview of diet and autism together with a range of useful recipes and handy hints for making mealtimes fun for children with autism and related conditions.

"Dietary interventions for the treatment of autism are promoted by some as being effective for improving socialization, communication, regulation, and sensory motor skills. The following thesis provides information on the effects of gluten-free and casein-free diets on children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. The history of autism is reviewed. Symptoms, characteristics, and problems associated with autism are identified. Most importantly, this thesis examines the benefits and the challenges of the gluten-free and casein-free dietary intervention on children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. There have been a limited amount of studies conducted. Children have made improvements reducing and eliminating autistic characteristics, however, the gluten free and casein free diet may simply relieve discomfort with digestion, which may naturally result in improved behavior in the areas of socialization, communication, regulation, and sensory motor skills.

Parents have been reporting a connection between autism and diet for decades, but for many years the science behind the connection was evasive. Today, we see a growing body of research to back up parental-reported evidence that certain foods and other environmental sources can affect the developing brains of some children, and trigger adverse behavioural episodes. Written by an autism expert who has witnessed in her own child the dramatic improvement that can be made through dietary intervention, this book offers an 'easily digestible' guide to the science behind the considerations; strategies for implementing a safe diet; a handy list of ingredients to be avoided; as well as a concise bank of essential resources and useful contacts. This book offers an accessibly concise guide to all aspects of dietary invention in children with autism, and is an ideal resource for parents, teachers and any other family member or caregiver who needs to know how to help implement a safe and healthy diet for an autistic child.

‘You are what you eat’. It’s a saying that we’ve all heard time and time again. The notion that good nutrition is essential for adequate growth and sound physical wellbeing is very well established. Further, in recent years, there has been an overwhelming increase in research dedicated to better understanding how nutritional factors influence cognition and behaviour. For example, several studies have suggested that higher foetal exposure to omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins such as folate promotes neurodevelopment. B vitamins may also play a role in neurocognitive functioning in later life, with some suggestion that lower vitamin B levels are associated with increased risk of dementia (although randomised controlled trials investigating B vitamin supplementation as a cognitive enhancer in the elderly have provided inconclusive evidence as to the benefits of such therapy for dementia). In fact, the nutritional underpinnings of Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders of cognitive ageing is becoming a much researched topic. In addition, consumption of several other foods has been found to convey more acute cognitively enhancing effects. For example, ingestion of carbohydrates (e.g. glucose), caffeine, resveratrol and several ‘nutraceutical’ herbal extracts has been associated with short-term improvements in cognitive performance. Beyond specific micronutrients and macronutrients, the current literature seems to support anecdotal evidence that consumption of a balanced breakfast is crucial to various measures of school performance, including attention in the classroom. What is clear from this emerging literature is that the relationship between nutritional status and neurocognitive functioning at various stages of the lifespan is complex. An aim of this Research Topic is to bring together some recent empirical findings, reviews and commentaries of the literature to date and opinion pieces relating to future directions for this burgeoning field.

This investigation was designed to measure any differences in expressive and receptive language skills, and any behavior changes before, during, and after implementation of a gluten-free diet. A case-series design was used. Two participants with diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorders were placed on a gluten-free diet for three months. The Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals-Fourth Edition (CELF-4) receptive and expressive language subtests were administered. Dietetic records were maintained daily to document the diet and noted behavior changes from the caregivers' perspective. Feedback was obtained with the dietary intake form, weekly contacts, and the CELF-4 Pragmatic Profile and Observational Rating Scale. The pre-post testing revealed significant improvement in receptive language for one of the participants. The caregiver observations reported progress in receptive and expressive language skills, fewer tantrums, increase attention span, and less irritability. The participants' performance during the three-month study improved in social and behavioral areas of communication according to the caregivers' feedback. Providing resources to adapt to a gluten-free diet is essential for a smooth transition and to decrease the anxiety of the people involved. Caregivers reported that they would continue to implement the gluten-free dietary intervention.
