Food Allergies and AutismThe Autism Site
Teaching a child with autism to interact with the world is a challenge in itself; giving a child restraints on what they can or cannot eat is also difficult — autistic or not.
Six-year-old Kirby is energetic and lively, and has high functioning autism. He also has life-threatening allergies to peanuts, eggs, and shellfish, so it’s important that he learn how to assess the food he eats. Watch as Kirby attends therapy and is taught to identify what is safe and not safe to eat.
Way to go Kirby – we’re proud of you!
