My son has been on the gluten free, casein free diet since when he was diagnosed last year. The first thing that everyone noticed was how much his communication increased during that first week. Then his awareness improved towards his brother. Before, he had never once said his brother’s name or even paid attention to his brother until we started the gluten free, casein free diet. Over time, he continues to improve, his stimming has decreased, his eye contact has gotten better with everyone and he is understanding a lot more.
