First autism-specific cookbook, now in paperback.
As rates of autism and other pervasive developmental disorders rise (conservative estimates are 16 out of every 1,000 children with pockets of much higher incidence), more and more parents are searching for solutions. There has been much interest in special diets for these kids, and many parents have found success by eliminating gluten and casein (proteins found in grains and dairy products) from their childrens diets. Until now, however, there has not been a cookbook that addresses these dietary needs. This book offers kid-friendly recipes that contain no gluten or casein, along with information on why the diet works. All the specialty ingredients are explained and sources are provided.
