Parents of children on the Autism Spectrum are constantly searching for new innovations, and a new diet is showing extraordinary results. The Gluten-Free/Casein-Free (GFCF) Diet, as well as removing all artificial dyes and preservatives, have proven to be very successful for autistic children in removing many of their autism traits and symptoms. A breakthrough of hope for parents, "The Autism Diet" is the new tool in the fight against autism.
"In a "nutshell," I thought it was an excellent reference book. I, myself, have tried to use this diet in the past but found it an overwhelming task. Barrie, however, gives you a step by step guide to make your implementation of the diet much easier .....what foods, where to buy foods, and how to stay on the diet while eating out, vacationing, and even for a hospital stay. I certainly recommend adding this book to your personal library." - Parenting Special Needs Magazine商品の説明をすべて表示する

My criticisms of the book though is that I think it was incredibly overwhelming and scary for someone who was on the fence like me about embarking on the large burden of transforming their kitchen and cooking. She was almost extremist about her positions--suggesting that you buy entirely separate utensils and appliances. I simply can't afford to do that and implying that not finding success "because I didn't implement the diet fully or correctly or consistently" [paraphrased] hurts more than helps parents who are seeking answers. I would normally knock only one star off for this reason, but because I find so much value in the diet and its miraculous potential for ASD kids, I am further disappointed that the book makes it seem that the only people who pursue this diet are crackpots. I would highly recommend the The Kid-Friendly ADHD & Autism Cookbook; it is much more accessible and even-handed.

Barrie Silberberg has written a guidebook to the elimination diet approach that focuses specifically on gluten-free and casein-free (GFCF) living but which includes certain other strategies and resources that need not be tied specifically to the GFCF platform. For example, resources do include GFCF recipes. But they also include more generic elimination diet strategies such as ways to avoid cross-contamination, red flags that one might not consider (culprit substances in cosmetics, medications or pet foods for example), compensating for "lost" nutrition, and the whole concept of substituting acceptable ingredients for those not allowed. In the GFCF universe this translates to versions of cookies, bread, "ice cream" and even play dough that are still possible. Included too are references to companies in the U.S. and abroad that manufacture GFCF and other elimination diet foods. Also here are lists with contact information on related programs, alternative interventions and approaches, support groups, message boards, ListServs and forums not to mention an exhaustive catalog of the many foods in which culprit substances are present. There are even compilations of Silberberg's own footwork, i.e. lists of individual GFCF products that can be found in regular supermarkets. These lists are based on Silberberg's own research, label-reading and phone conversations with representatives of various companies.
Finally, let it be noted that Silberberg's own son is autistic. He, himself, has been on the GFCF elimination diet since he was seven years old. While he was in elementary school, his parents were told he must leave the school or else enroll in either the class for the severely emotionally disturbed or the one for those suffering moderate to severe autistism. Yet by the time he reached middle school, he was an award-winning honors student. The final chapter of this book was written by him.
