You did the right thing in changing your child's diet. The food he had been eating was causing him to be sick you are now giving him better nutrition and so his body and behaviors are responding appropriately. Unless he has no sign of autism now it will be fine. Just be honest.

You are doing the right thing by your son by changing his diet. His Autism diagnosis will always be there, but he will not have to deal with the food allergies which he has. I have an allergy to wheat as diagnosed by a gasterenterologist, and it caused me problems for years. I have been on the diet for almost seven years, and I do not regret it one bit. I am sick less often because all the wonderful vitamins and minerals are processed in my intestines. Also, my medications are working more effectively. Besides coming to this group, you might also want to check out the local support groups in your area with Easter Seals (http://www.easterseals.org/), Autism Speaks (http://www.autismspeaks.org/), and Autism Society (http://www.autism-society.org/). To get the most out of your son's education and therapies, you might also want to check out: http://www.wrightslaw.com/. I also recommend Special Olympics (http://www.specialolympics.org/) because they have a wonderful young athlete program which works on basic skills for life.

How wonderful that you are making such progress with the diet! Don't worry about the evaluation, it will be fine. Most importantly he is happy and healthy!

Don't worry about the diagnosis, what matters is your son is doing great. If he doesn't present with any problems, or few problems during the evaluation then that is wonderful. If he runs into more problems later you can reassess. The people who do the testing are trained to pick up little details so if there is something there they will see it. It is a long journey but rejoice that you have had such great results and try and relax. It all works out... WELCOME!
