The Feingold Diet for ADHD & Autism: you have the label...now what?

This presentation will cover the following points:

  • Why is my child having so many problems?
  • There are many ways to help, but since you have to eat anyway, a change in food is the second easiest choice.
  • What is the Feingold Diet and what symptoms are likely to respond?
  • Be nice to yourself as you begin the program; it's okay to test the waters with baby steps.
  • Combining the Feingold Diet with other diets and therapies.
  • You have an army of experts to help you, but the most essential expert is you!
