Special Diets for Special Kids : Understanding and Implementing a Gluten and Casein Free Diet to Aid in the Treatment of Autism
Special Diets for Special Kids Autism Diets was published in January 1998 by publisher Future Horizons, Inc. Lisa Lewis’s Understanding and implementing special diets to aid in the treatment of Autism and other related Developmental Disorders is available in hardcover.
Dr Lisa Lewis who is the Director of Neuropsychological Services at Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas uses a common sense approach to Autism Treatment, normally viewed as a very complex subject. Dr. Lewis, is a mother of autistic children herself, she offers specific examples of food allergies and intolerances which impact health and behavior in children with autism or related developmental disorders, and provides gluten/casein-free recipes; lists of vitamins, minerals, and supplements; and much more.
Combine 1 part research with 2 parts practical, hands-on information, add a dash of humor and season well with years of experience.
Within the pages of this book Lisa Lewis explains, in an easy and readable manner, a complex yet intriguing intervention strategy for helping children and adults with autism. Drawing upon her own success with removing gluten and casein from her son’s diet, she answers the many questions parents and professionals might have about choosing a dietary intervention. Why choose a special diet? Are there tests to help me decide? Is there research to support this type of intervention? Will my child starve? What do I cook?
Also within these pages are over 150 good-tasting recipes to get started on the diet everything from Spaghetti & Meatballs to Holiday treats and sweets to edible clay! A MUST-HAVE book for anyone thinking about the benefits of a special diet.
