My nephew has autism and was high functioning, but distant. My sister took him to a doctor in Florida who tested him for food allergies and gave her a list of foods to avoid. He is on a gluten-free diet along with other avoidances and will now talk to me (even though I only see him 3 times a year), hugs without being prompted, and tells stories. It is amazing!!! The first time I saw him on this new diet, it was almost scary about communicative he is. My sister is now working to eliminate chemicals from her home to see if he is affected by those also. Something to think about!
