So, with that being said, a lot of the advice, questions and suggestions we have gotten have to do with Leila's diet and immunizations. Chris and I stand by our decision to have our children immunized. We believe in protecting our children from harmful diseases. We choose not to put Leila on the gluten free/casein free diet. We do not believe that Leila is a candidate nor would she benefit from this diet. I have done a lot of research on these two topics and have talked with our ABA supervisor and a developmental psychologist about our decisions and feel confident in the choices we have made. My sister sent me this article from the Scientific American and I think it summarizes perfectly why Chris and I are not seeking alternative treatments for Leila. Please read it if you have the time. I think everyone could stand to be a little more informed about autism. There is so much to know.
