Author(s): Lisa Lewis

Praised as a modern-day classic by celebrities and readers all over the world, the first edition of this highly acclaimed book has been helping children and adults with autism, ADHD, celiac disease, and other disorders since 1998. Volume 2 followed up by providing more recipes and updated research. Now, this revised and expanded edition offers both books in one, complete with groundbreaking research, revised recipes, and color photos throughout! Part medical treatise, part cookbook, this book not only teaches how to make gluten-free casein-free (GFCF) meals and snacks, it also reveals how GFCF diets "work." - See more at:
1st Runner-Up in the 2004 Writers' Notes Book Awards! This book part medical treatise, part cook book will teach you how to make GFCF entrees, breads, desserts, and many other foods the entire family will enjoy eating. In a nutshell, certain enzymes are required to break down gluten and casein. If the enzymes that normally break down casein and gluten don't function well, serious neurological problems can result. Studies have shown that children with autism have a marked deficiency of these enzymes, so gluten-free casein-free (GFCF) diets have yielded positive results for many children. First Runner-Up in the Writers' Notes Book Awards, this original Special Diets book has been helping children and adults with autism, ADHD, Celiac disease, and other disorders since 1998! The first part of the book describes the diet in detail, from both a scientific and a personal approach (the author's son has autism and their family has been on the GFCF diet for years). Helpful sections include: Sams Story About Special Diets Allergy or Intolerance Tests and Nutritional Supports How (And What) to Feed Your Child Help From Friends Relatives Next, the cookbook part contains over 140 recipes, including many you would have never thought possible on a GFCF diet, such as: Breaded chicken nuggets and fish sticks Spaghetti and Meatballs Pizza Mock mac and- cheese Pancakes and muffins Cookies and cakes And more!

Destined to become a staple for those who love, live or work with children with autism. The authors’ voices are authoritative and comforting. Perhaps most importantly, they are spot on with the issues. A toolkit packed with ideas, resources, suggestions, and a good dose of encouragement, validation and yes: redemption.

Every parent, every teacher, every therapist should have this wonderful book at hand! In a warm, accessible, punchy format, Veronica Zysk and Ellen Notbohm provide fast, fun activities and been-there insights that address the many challenges of autism, from social skills strategies to school issues to sensory integration challenges. I can't recommend this book highly enough."

I was amazed at the number and quality of ideas, and strongly recommend that parents read and apply the advice. I learned some really good ideas!

Genuine, commonsense advice that all parents and educators can quickly and easily use!
