My autistic son at the age of 3 years 2 months, after four months on the GFCF diet (began phasing in the diet in February, 100% compliant as of March 24, 2009.) Note again that he has never had any ABA therapy, nor is he on any behavioral medications. We have moved forward with some additional digestive treatment, including one round of an antibiotic (Flagyl) after lab tests showed a significant Clostridium infection, and one round of an antifungal (Fluconazole) after the antibiotic allowed a fungal infection to flourish. (Unlike many autistic children, he never had any ear infections and was never prescribed any antibiotics as a baby.) He is also on a standard multivitamin supplement.

In addition to making requests, he now responds to questions, and even asks questions of his own! Also note how long his attention span is now--he had already been playing this game for several minutes before I snuck the camera in the room.

In just the last two months he has already met almost half of his IEP goals (the ones he is in theory expected to meet by the end of next schoolyear, May 2010,) before ever having set foot inside the classroom.
