Absolute must for parents of ASD children.
on 12 March 2002
As a parent of a child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder who could scream for 20 hours per day we were desparate for understanding and help. A friend loaned me a copy of Marilyn Le Breton's book and our lives changed. Within weeks of implementing the diet our son had changed beyond all expectations. I now have two copies of this book. One I keep and the other which is being passed around my son's nursery staff.
In two parts, the first part is the story of herself and her children and their journey through implementing the diet. She tells with such honesty and humour, warts and all, her disasters and successes.
The second part contains recipes and ideas for all the food your child could ever want to eat.
Thanks to this diet, many lives have been improved. I simply could not have implemented it without Marilyn's help. This book is so easy to read with it's friendly and practical 'I don't do science' style I would recommend it without any reservation. My child's support worker was unable to put the book down. In reading just this one book she learned everything she needed to know about my child and his autism and how diet affected him. What a shame that I can only give it a maximum five stars when I would gladly give it so much more.
Thanks to Marilyn we now have hope for the future. Any parent of a similar child should buy this book and give the diet a try.
