Mealtime a Challenge for Some With Autism
Date:2/3/2010

Those with the disorder prone to restrictive, obsessive eating habits

Some could be attributed to children going on gluten- and casein-free diets (wheat-free and milk-free) that some believe help with autism, Dawson said.

"In typically developing children, eating problems are relatively common, affecting 20 to 40 percent of kids," Dawson said. "In children with autism, eating
