Special Diets for Special Kids by Lisa Lewis, Ph.D. Volumes 1 & 2 Combined

Gluten-free, casein free (GFCF) foods are easy to make, delicious and can be life-altering - not only for your child, but your whole family.

Praised as a modern-day classic by celebrities and readers all over the world, the first edition of Special Diets for Special Kids has been helping children and adults with autism, ADHD, coeliac disease and other disorders since 1998.

The first part of the book describes dietary intervention in detail, from both a scientific and a personal approach (the author's son has autism and has been on a GFCF diet for many years). In a nutshell, certain enzymes are required to break down gluten and casein. If those enzymes don't function well, or are not present at sufficient levels, serious neurological problems can result.

The Second part of the book is an easy-to-follow cookbook. Containing over 200 recipes, including many you would have thought impossible on a GFCF diet, such as:

Banana-Nut Pancakes, Mock Mac & Cheese and Blueberry Muffins.

Complete with FREE CD of printable recipes. 375 pages


"The writings of Lisa Lewis have made a huge impact on the field of autism. As an educator and a parent, Dr. Lewis has been instrumental in describing the issues of gluten and casein sensitivities, and how these problems affect the behavior of autistic individuals. She has changed the lives of many autistic individuals and their families."—Stephen Edelson, Ph.D., Director of the Center for the Study of Autism

"Special Diets for Special Kids has a prominent position in our allergen-free household! We all have various food allergies and this is one resource I won't be without. Each recipe thus far has been wonderful and surprisingly simple. The Baked Kibbe, Sloppy Joes, and Hamentashen have quickly become family favorites. Eating without gluten, especially, has changed our 'hyper' son's behavior drastically and he's no longer the fussy eater that he was. His teacher was shocked at the change for the better. Oh, and our dinner guests without dining challenges love this food as well. Thank you for this indispensable resource!"—Tamara Dever, Creative Director, TLC Graphics, and mom of family with food allergies
