The ADHD and AUTISM NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT

Postby ScrappyMommyof3 » Wed Jun 26, 2013 4:40 pm

By Dana Godbout Laake and Pamela J Compart (Authors of "The Kid-Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook")

Although this book has a lot of great information on biomedical and diet intervention it goes over the same thing over and over and over again. Very repetitive like they were simply trying to make the book bigger when they could have simply said "see magnesium" (for example.) Also much of the information is incomplete.

Do you conclude that it is not worth buying this book?

The other day, one parent at DS' school mentioned it during parent meeting. They were pretty firm that use of the book has changed their son significantly (positively). I was considering the book. Since we are not on any special diet (except healthy, organic grass-fed, free-range, freshwater kind of food), I was thinking to give it a go.

I actually got better information from Dr Sears "The Autism Book" and Kenneth Bock's "Healing the Four A's" than from this one. While this one had some good information I found that much of it was repeat information from both of the other books. My son didn't respond to the special diet approach much at all with the exception of removing casein which we have found to be very helpful so in many of these books I have to go past the whole diet intervention. We do try to make sure that his diet is as un-processed as possible and that his sugar intake is low but other than that he pretty much eats what any normal 7 year old eats. I've actually found that eliminating gluten didn't do anything in the time that we were on it. I wouldn't buy the book again.

Hi ScrappyMommyof3, I need to ask you a huge favor if you don't mind. I am currently doing my master degree in behavioral analysis and have to conduct an interview with a caregiver of an ASD. I was wondering if I can conduct an interview with you via phone or email but the questions will be very generic, no names will be discussed, only general info will be asked?

Thanks for our consideration.
