We just got news that my oldest son "Brenden" (age 2) is autistic... I don't think it has all "sank in" yet, and I am not dealing with it very well. I just don't understand what went wrong or when things went down hill... Its just as if all his progress from being a baby is going backwards... I am heart broken & am willing to do ANYTHING to heal my child... I have heard of the GFCF diet & was wondering if anyone else had tried that... We are in the process of getting speech therapy & other therapy started along with catscans, hearing test & many more doctor appts... I just was wondering if there is anything I can do to help him & any tips that will help start the potty training adventure (he now takes him diaper off everytime he pees including at night) but refuses to go to the potty, any tips on starting to talk again, & any tips for eating habits (he only eats things with a crunchy texture... which makes 90% of his meals JUNK)... I also have another son "Skyler" (age 4 months)... Is there any way to prevent this from happening to him... & is there any way I can heal Brenden & get him back to way he was before. Thank you all for the support from this website, I am new to this & am loving it so far!
