Changing Henry to a gluten/dairy diet made a massive difference and we believe was a huge contributor to his progress.

We did go down the biomedical route for about three years however it got to be virtually impossible as Henry was so rigid and controlling about what he ate and drank. Even though it was really difficult to maintain because of his inflexibility it definitely helped him and we went maize/soya/refined sugar free for quite a while. Today we are really careful what Henry has and although we have relaxed a little on the maize and soya and sugar front we do still make sure that this is kept to a minimum. We still stick to the gluten and dairy free, we still think it is extremely important for him.

Changing your child’s diet and trying to introduce new foods is a huge undertaking but it is also a really empowering and exciting one!

These are just a few things that I have learnt that might help:
