Autism Research Institute Webinar

Autism: the SCD Diet Webinar

Presented by Vicki Kobliner, MS, RD 

Many children with Autism suffer from digestive disorders that can affect learning, behavior and mood. The Specific Carbohydrate diet (SCD) has been used for decades to heal the gut in people with digestive disorders, and is a popular dietary therapy for children with ASD. Improvements in bowel function, language, eye contact and self stimulatory behavior can occur when the diet is implemented correctly. In clear and understandable language, Ms. Kobliner will provide a framework for successful implementation of the SCD diet, while covering the following topics:
- Rationale for use
- Which children are the best candidates
- Diet principles
- Understanding the phases of the diet
- Avoiding common mistakes
- Meal planning and preparation tips
