Nutrition for the Child with Autism (Chiropractic Continuing Ed Track registrants only)


The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), and its offspring GAPS, is becoming widely recognized as the diet for children and adults with autism and other conditions. Researchers are studying the impact of SCD on children with autism, and the Seattle Children’s Hospital uses the SCD for children with GI conditions. Children are having dramatic positive responses to SCD far exceeding the benefits of other dietary strategies.
