Gluten-free and casein-free (GFCF) diets, also known as “autism diets,” have been heralded as reliable treatment options for Autism Spectrum Disorder (AUS) by some therapists, but scientific evidence has been lacking. A recent study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has found that using dietary supplementation to treat children with autism is not only ineffective, but it could also lead to both insufficient nutrients and excessive nutrients.
If you have a child with autism, then you know that there are good days and bad days, grateful days and resentful days. You have days where autism takes a back seat and days where autism is not only sitting up front with you, it’s in the driver’s seat.
When you say, “My son/daughter has autism” people don’t know how to respond. Most folks know not to say, “Woo hoo!” and high-five me, so instead they fumble for their speech, they turn their gaze away, they make horrible social blunders, and then quickly try to escape an uncomfortable situation.
ndividuals with regressive Down syndrome return to baseline functioning when treated for Catatonia
Down syndrome, the most common chromosomal disorder in America, can be complicated by significant deterioration in movement, speech and functioning in some adolescents and young adults. Physicians previously attributed this regression todepression or early-onset Alzheimer’s, and it has not responded to treatments. Now, a researcher at the University of Missouri has found that Catatonia, a treatable disorder, may cause regression in patients with Down syndrome. Individuals with regressive Down syndrome who were treated for Catatonia showed improvement, the researcher found.
