My daughter has social/language difficulty. I've heard it all, from Aspergers to Autism to PDD. In recieving help from a friend whose son is autistic I began eliminating sugar,yeast and dyes (red40 etc..)from her diet. It is difficult for me to come into this site and just pass by any messages that concerns youngsters having difficulty communicating / socializing! Please ask the mother to look into a change in diet.It has done wonders for my daughter and she has excelled beyond all my hopes! The doctors are getting confused because they can no longer 'label' her with a pinpointed disorder. E-mail me and I would be happy to let you know what I keep out of her diet and what supplements I put in!!!
