ASD The Complete Autism Spectrum Disorder Health and Diet Guide: Includes 175 Gluten-Free and Casein-Free Recipes

In May 2013, the American Psychiatric Association provided new diagnostic criteria for autism: autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The term incorporates diagnoses previously described as separate: autistic disorder, Asperger's Disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorders not otherwise specified.

This comprehensive book on ASD will be a valuable resource for parents, caregivers and health professionals as well, with its combination of years of practical experience and a range of skills and knowledge from its outstanding author team. This multidisciplinary health care team has a keen understanding of the goals and expectations of both the patient and families.
