just wondering if anyone has had their dev delayed child tested for food allergies. If so, did you notice an improvement?
Two separate special education teachers have suggested eliminating gluten. They say that they have seen speech delayed children's speech improve drastically in as little as one week.
I started dabbling with GF, but put it aside for now. We have a doctors appt next week and I want to try and get him tested. My son is a carb lover. Pasta, bagels, crackers. He will sometimes eat raw veggies. Eats his weight in fruit. Will not touch any meats (used to eat salmon and tofu-not anymore, and sometimes we can get him to eat chickpeas)
I've also been toying with the idea of an elimination diet and reintroduction of most common allergens to see if he changes any. He is only 3.5 so I wonder if he is too young to try this. Plus I'm afraid his stubborness would starve him.
If any of you have any information or experience with allergens or the elimination diet, please share with me.
