Many children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a restricted dietary range, and this book provides parents with advice and training on how to deal with this condition and achieve a healthier and more balanced diet. Now described as Avoidant or Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), it is due to sensory hypersensitivity, and it can impact upon the health of the child, upon the family, and upon social integration. Based upon successful training packages the authors provide for parents and professionals, this book enables the reader to understand the condition and work with it, gradually increasing the range of food a child is able to eat. It includes 'box outs' with case studies, points of interest and action points to make this an accessible and resourceful read.

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.

Annotation Despite increasing interest, very little is known about the occurrence of psychiatric disorders in persons with autism and Asperger Syndrome. Mental Health Aspects of Autism and Asperger Syndrome alerts parents and professionals to the occurrence of common emotional and psychological problems in autism (e.g. schizophrenia, violence, depression, anxiety, tics) and provides sound advice for the detection and treatment of psychiatric problems in people with ASDs. The conditions described in this book are those that Dr Ghaziuddin, an experienced psychiatrist specialising in autism, has most commonly seen in autistic children and adults, although Dr Ghaziuddin clearly states that he is not proposing a direct link between psychiatric disorders and autism, but is rather recognising the need to systematically characterise commonly occurring disorders, with the hope that this will lead to their early recognition and treatment.

Rationale: Diagnosis of autism has increased ten-fold in the last 40 years, and adults with autism remain an underrepresented population in research. Purpose: To qualitatively explore the relationship between eating behaviors and autism using a questionnaire and interviews with adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Methods: Four males aged 22-27 were interviewed with their mothers present and completed the Swedish Eating Assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorders (SWEAA). Interviews were analyzed through the process of open coding, and the questionnaires were analyzed to determine consistent findings between the interview and the SWEAA questionnaire. Major Findings: Participants generally recognized hunger and satiety and were consuming a high carbohydrate, high fat diet low in vegetables. Variety in food choices was highly dependent upon encouragement from family members. Participants showed no concern for body image, but parents had taken steps to avoid weight gain as their children aged. Previous nutrition education was not particularly meaningful to participants, however they did understand general healthy eating concepts. Implications: Parents should encourage variety in the diets of individuals with autism, as negative responses to foods appear to decrease with age. Participants' concern with functionality rather than appearance should be considered in the way weight management is approached by health professionals such as Registered Dietitian Nutritionists.

Selective Eating in Autism Spectrum Disorder

Selective Eating in Autism Spectrum Disorder

Results of the scoping review and the cohort study indicate that selective eating is a multifaceted problem that warrants comprehensive, interdisciplinary assessment and intervention that takes the family context into account.

View: 855

Selective eating is a significant problem for many children with ASD and their families. An estimated 46-89% of children with ASD have feeding problems (Ledford & Gast, 2006); food refusal and limited acceptance are the most commonly reported as the most common (Schreck & Williams, 2006). Although there is currently no standard definition, selective eating has been described as a combination of limited food variety and a high rate of food refusal (Bandini et al., 2010). Children with selective eating may have nutritional deficiencies due to their limited dietary variety (Zimmer et al., 2012). Selective eating has been primarily referred to as a discreet challenging or repetitive behavior in the intervention literature (Sharp et al., 2010); however, children with selective eating can have additional challenging behaviors which may complicate their clinical picture (Johnson et al., 2014). In addition, parents of children with ASD may be at risk for increased parenting stress, depression symptoms, and mental health problems due to their child's feeding problems (Davis & Carter, 2008; Estes et al., 2009). The discovery of factors associated with selective eating can help determine appropriate treatment targets. The objective of this dissertation is to determine child and parent factors associated with selective eating, both through a scoping review of the literature and through a cohort study of a sample of children with ASD ages 4-10 and their parents. Results of the scoping review and the cohort study indicate that selective eating is a multifaceted problem that warrants comprehensive, interdisciplinary assessment and intervention that takes the family context into account. Each child's health status, sensory reactivity, psychosocial well-being, and physiological features should be considered along with selective eating and related challenging behaviors. Future research is needed to explore factors intrinsic to the child that are associated with selective eating, such as oral motor difficulties and stress responses during the presentation of new foods. In addition, the long-term impacts of selective eating on health and participation should be studied. Additional studies are also needed to understand attitudes of parents toward their child's selective eating, the development of coping styles, and physiological correlates of stress during mealtime

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. This is the book that Marilyn wishes had been available to her when she first did so. In it she 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 minimise cross-contamination in the kitchen. The book includes a wide selection of recipes, an extensive list of addresses and websites of suppliers of foodstuffs in the UK, and suggestions for finding out more information. It 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 a child with autism, or any adult considering embarking on the diet.
