autism or not autism

Postby Gabe » Sat Jan 28, 2017 5:03 am

Hello to all, I am submitting for assistance to all members of the Forum the following information:
The 6 years old daughter of a friend of mine does not speak since birth. Her parents have had her visited by any kind of specialist with no
success. She does not show the typical behaviour of autistic child. She has been ok in a certain sense till recently, but now her behaviour has
changed. She is very nervous and reacts at times with violence againt some relatives and surprisingly her mother as well. She is having difficulty to
deal with the support/resource teacher who are being changed frequently. Parents do not know what to do any more.
1. Is it autism according to your experience or not?
2. Is there anyone who has had a similar experience and can offer his/her excperience and suggestions?
3.Is there any autism expert who can assist?
4. What would do anyone of you as parents in this case?
1000 thanks to all.
Rome, Italy.

I can't answer 1, 2, or 3, but I'll try number 4.  If parents haven't already, I'd throw out household chemicals, non-stick and aluminum cookware, plastic dishes and cups, filter tub and drinking water, etc., to make her environment as free of toxins as possible.  Organic food only.  Then I'd try the REID diet (Reduced  Excitatory Inflammatory Diet) for 5 weeks to see if her recent behavior improves: ... tamate.pdf

You may have more response if you post on the Diet and Biomedical board.  Best wishes.
