SCD & AUTISM
In 2001-2002, a handful of moms started using the SCD for their children who suffered from autism. As the children experienced positive results, news of the SCD began spreading within the autism community.
In September 2005, Elaine passed away at the age of 84. For those seeking guidance on using the SCD for symptoms of autism, we recommend the following resources:

Elaine's book has helped many of my friends and family. My father has Crohn's, my son has recovered from Autism, and I have food hypersensitivites and the SCD diet worked on all of us. I also own a private school and I constantly tell parents of children with AD(H)D, Autism, skin issues, Asthma, etc about therapies that include the SCD Diet (and have them read this book). I have been to several (DAN!) conference where Elaine has been a speaker and I have the highest respect for her.
