Product Description

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is a strict grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free dietary regimen intended for those suffering from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (both forms of IBD), celiac disease, IBS, cystic fibrosis, and autism. It is based on the work of Elaine Gottschall, who wrote Breaking the Vicious Cycle, which introduces the SCD and explains the importance of eliminating certain carbohydrates in order to alleviate digestive ailments such as IBD, IBS, and celiac disease.

For those suffering from gastrointestinal illnesses, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) offers a method for easing symptoms and pain, and ultimately regaining health. Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet(TM) offers a diverse and delicious collection of 150 SCD-friendly recipes, that includes over 80 dairy-free recipes. The easy-to-make and culturally diverse recipes featured in the book include breakfast dishes, appetizers, main dishes, and desserts such as -- Hazelnut-Vanilla Pancakes, Olive Sandwich Bread, Chicken Satay, Roasted Bass with Parsley Butter, Thin Crust Pizza, Gretel's Gingerbread Cookies, and Mango Ice Cream. It is accompanied by 40 full-color photos that will inspire you to get cooking again. In addition, personal anecdotes accompany each section of this book. You can find out more about this book on-line at www.scdrecipe.com/cookbook/.

5-0 out of 5 stars Needed this!
I have no self-control, I admit it, so sticking with the SCD is hard for me - even if it is the only thing that really makes me feel better. I found myself getting in a food rut, making the same things over and over and getting sick of them (making it harder to stick to the diet). This cook book gave me all sorts of new things to try, I was excited about the diet all over again, and so far everything I have made has been really easy and delicious! Highly recommend. Nice layout and pictures as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars outstanding cookbook for Specific Carbohydrate Diet or any low-carb
Fantastic cookbook for those on the SCDiet for ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease, low-carb or Paleo Dieters. Great use of spices and I really liked the recipe to make my own curry powder. The recipes range from Foccaccia to Beef Vindaloo to Chicken with Lemon Sauce. Can't wait to make some of the desserts. Wonderful photography.
If I could only have one cookbook in my house it would be this one and that's saying a lot since I own a lot of cookbooks, but this one has very special recipes not found in many places.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fresh, wonderful recipes
I love this whole book, and I tell everyone I know with digestive ailments about it. As I write I have walnut parmesan chicken dredge in almond flour in my refrigerator. It's so good that I eat it cold when I'm on the run.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas, sometimes too far out there
Awesome cookbook, very culturally diverse. Can't imagine eating some of those foods. But the other recipes more than make up for it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Contains illegal SCD ingredients
I was excited to get this book, the recipes look pretty good. The very first item I made, Lemon Cookies, contained baking powder, which is specifically illegal on the SCD diet. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential for all educators of children with PDD
This book provides clear, easy to use strategies for teaching and communicating with children on the autism spectrum. The author's contend that behavioral problems exhibited by children with autism are most often the result of frustration that comes from their inability to communicate effectively. Behavioral problems can be successfuly addressed by focusing on what the child is trying to communicate.Rationale for the strategies suggested is provided.I recommend this book for educators and parents.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to implement methods for enhancing play skills
There are so many books on autism and not all are applicable to our family's situation.I tend to read a library copy before purchasing.When it came time to return this book, I decided that this was one for ourpersonal library.It's easy to read and I will refer to it over and over. Methods are easy to understand and implement.As a parent of an autisticchild, it's one of the few books I've felt that will be invaluable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book for anyone working with children with autism
This book is a wonderful resource for learning how to approach children with autism. It is very easy to read and deals with a variety of different methods that can be used to deal with just about any level on the autisticspectrum.As a speech therapist working with variety of children withautism, I continually return to this resource to help plan my assessmentsand intervention. It is an excellent resource that addresses communication,play, pragmatics, parent desires, and self-control at a variety of levels. The chapters that deal with specific areas, such as enhancing socialcommunicative interactions, often provide you with the necessary paperworkfor assessment and/or intervention in the appendix.This is a must buybook!I would highly recommend this book to anyone working with childrenwith autism.

5-0 out of 5 stars Most useful book if you are working with a child with Autism
This is the best book to own if you are working with a child with anAutistic Spectrum Disorder(ASD). It is amazing how much the editors fitinto this little book. The overall philosophy of the book is towards aneclectic approach to ASD.It presents many different ideas from differentpeople, all of which could be added to a program, method, approach for aparticular child. If you are dogmatic about one method, this is not thebook for you. The book starts out with several chapters looking into whatwe know about autism, a Temple Grandin chapter on what it is like to haveautism and a Charles Hart chapter on what parents want (required readingfor educators!). Then there arechapters on enhancing communication innonverbal children,echolalic, and verbal children. These chapter are byPrizant, Rydell, Twachtman . Then there are a bunch of chapters onstrategies for social stuff. Carol Gray wrote one chapter on socialstories. This book is readable, full of ideas. I hope the authors plan tokeep the book fresh with a new edition in a few years. As a parent of achild with ASD, I own two copies, and lend out the second to others whowork with my son. ...

Product Description
Many treatment programs encourage verbal imitation and production without addressing the oral hypersensitivities that often inhibit the ability to produce verbal language in children with autism spectrum disorders. This guide introduces an oral-motor protocol designed to enhance the child s ability to produce more normal movement patterns. It is accompanied by activities that can be incorporated into the child s daily schedule at home or at school for improved eating and speech development. The suggestions and activities will enable parents and professionals to broaden food varieties in a child s diet, increase a child s ability to accept touch inside and around the mouth, and expand the number of sounds produced by a child. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ!
My ASD son will be turning 4 soon and his oral motor issues have been one of the greatest challenges we face. I bought this book because I needed more to go on than my instincts. I needed clear understanding of the problems, real explanations about those complex issues, and a precise course of action I can take.This slim book provides ALL that. I am reading it over and over again, and I will continue to do so until I feel comfortable in the knowledge I have gained to then design a program at home that will work best for my child, in which it is appropriate to his age, and in an order and sequence that he is able to follow with the least resistance. I am also keeping in mind that I gotta make it F-U-N. There are terrific suggestions and ideas a-plenty in this book.It was money well spent. I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book was written for my daughter
I have a 3-1/2 year old daughter who has a diagnosis of PDD-NOS and who has just started seeing an oral motor speech therapist. She has very limited speech and has great difficulty trying to get her words out. She also has a great number of sensory issues and difficuly eating certain foods and textures. This book has really educated me and prepared me for my sessions with the oral motor therapist. And since we only meet with the therapist once a week, this book has really given me some great ideas and questions to ask and suggestions on how to carry out our treatments at home. This is really a very informative and useful book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for therapists, families, and teachers
This book provides easy to understand information for parents, teachers, and other professionals working with individuals on the Autism Spectrum. It is important for people to understand that there are steps that need to be accomplished prior to attempting and succeeding at the next step. This book really opened my mind to understanding the difficulties involved with oral motor deficits and how many areas it can impact.

Teachers ESPECIALLY need to understand how sensory issues affect development and ability to function - please please please read this!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The book covers helping the child eat, dental hygiene, speech therapy, and sentence formation, among other daily challenges
Many things that are simply elementary to most children prove to be a challenge to the autistic. "Improving Speech & Eating Skills in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Oral-Motor Program for Home and School" is a guide full of suggestions for those who care for children with autism. Establishing these skills early, like normal children, is vital to establishing them for life. The book covers helping the child eat, dental hygiene, speech therapy, and sentence formation, among other daily challenges. Any parent or caretaker of an autistic child needs "Improving Speech & Eating Skills in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders".

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on Feeding Issues for Kids with Autism
I cannot emphasize enough the hope this book has given me for my 12 year old son.This book explains what an oral-motor program is with case summaries of boys with autism who have school programs.The items to use and how to do it are all detailed within the pages of this book.

It is described in detail what the various techniques will achieve for the child with feeding issues and lack of imitation or initiating speech sounds.This should be done both in the home and school and can be practiced with teacher, therapist or aide at school and be a program for all students.This can easily be adapted into the school schedule and photos can help the nonverbal child know what is expected.

I highly recommend this book and wish it was around 9 or 10 years ago when my child was younger.I liked that the photos and case summaries are of boys in the age range of my son who is 12.There is help for the child that stuffs food in their mouth, and cannot tolerate new foods.This is a quick read of only 121 pages.You will need a highlighter with this book. ...

Product Description
Autism spectrum disorder has received increasing research in recent years, with more information on assessment and treatment than can be readily assimilated from primary literature by clinicians.Clinical Assessment and Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders summarizes evidence-based assessments and intervention for Autism across the life-span, providing clinicians with a practical overview of how best to assess and treat this disorder.The book begins with a discussion of what warrants a determination of being "evidence based" and a description of the disorder from a life span perspective.The book also provides a chapter on differential diagnosis of autism relative to other disorders.What follows are separate sections on assessment and intervention.These chapters discuss first how to assess and then separately how to treat behavioral problems, communication and social skills issues, academic and vocational skills, and the use of pharmacology and an assessment of possible pharmacological effects.Intended for practitioners assessing and treating children with developmental delays, the book provides clinicians with best practices for assessing and treating delays associated with autism.

Clinical Assessment and Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders (Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional) (Purchased on 05/22/2010)
by Johnny L. Matson
This was purchased to us for a gradute class.I found it very useful and will probably keep as a reference for the rest of my career.

3-0 out of 5 stars Book Supplies Information But Lacks Cohesion As A Textbook
Although this work provides a diverse amount of information on clinical assessment and intervention for autism spectrum disorders, it contains several weaknesses that prevent it from being called a "cohesive textbook."After working as a special educator at the high school and community college levels for over twenty years, these shortcomings are readily apparent to me.First, this book is filled with repetitious information that appears over and over again as the reader sifts through pages and chapters.Second, since this is a compendium of different author styles and approaches, it is imperative that the editor, Johhny Matson, control this format and information provided in each chapter, so the reader is guaranteed a degree of consistency.This was not done.Merely putting a bunch of chapters together without an overall design leaves the reader confused and uninformed.I have seen several other books edited by Johhny Matson.They are on a variety of educational topics, and I wonder whether each has similar shortcomings like this work on autism.Third, there is an overuse of abbreviations in his book causing the reader to flip pages back and forth to follow information supplied by a certain writer.Despite my extensive knowledge in special education, I found this aspect interrupted the reading of pages.

For the above reasons, I would not recommend this "comprehensive textbook" on autism spectrum disorder.The reader can acquire pieces of relevant information from it; however, there are other books offered on Amazon that are far more informative and user-friendly.As I read this work, I found myself turning to the end of each chapter to find articles/books for increased knowledge.Going to the source is preferable than getting it "second hand" in a textbook.

list price: US$50.00
Isbn: 0433308826
Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan
Editorial Review

Product Description
Michael Fordham's The Self and Autism is a piece of original research into maturation in infancy and its psychopathology. He was the first to introduce the idea that the self, previously considered realizable only in later life, could be experienced by children in a manner appropriate to their age; he also found that the archetypes of the collective unconscious whose images could be demonstrated in childhood, functioned in essentially the same way as Jung described in the case of adult persons. From these two concepts he developed a theory of individuation in childhood.

Part One of the present volume contains the author's views in their present state of development, which elaborate his ideas previously summarized in Children as Individuals. Part two on child analysis considers the present state of this discipline and puts forward ideas on its technique. Part Three is reserved for case presentations. There are two lengthy studies on childhood schizophrenia and another of primary autism which give sources for the author's recent conception of defenses of the self designed to protect the individuality of the child. The Self and Autism is a thought provoking and challenging volume. ... Read more

This book has been created for parents who have decided to make education and research an integral part of the treatment process.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bowel Problems Gone!
Wow!!!!!!!! We have been GFCF for three years, corn-free for one, chocolate-yeast-soy-free for six months, and looking to eliminate more because problems were creeping up.I NEVER thought we'd ever get off of a restricted diet!In addition, my son has had chronic diarrhea since starting the restricted diet.(He had chronic constipation before)

Now, I'm not constantly in the kitchen cooking some look-alike and acting the part of a food .We can relax and enjoy family get-togethers and my son is trying new foods. WOW!!!!I have my life back!!!!!!
Also, his bowel problems are GONE!!!His gut has healed and his stools are normal.(I've tried so many things to fix this without results)
He looks HEALTHY for the first time, despite all the supplements I was giving him before.
My son did develop dark circles under his eyes the week we started enzymes. We added NoFenol three weeks later and the dark circles went away.
He was stimmy for the first 3 days despite staying on the restricted diet.This resolved quickly and I introduced REAL foods the next week.
This is the miracle we had been praying for!Why didn't someone tell us about this sooner?

5-0 out of 5 stars "A new boy...."
I happened upon this book by accident but could not be more grateful for that accident.My son is 2 1/2 years old.He has MANY sensory issues (he is a sensory seeker), he also has apraxia of speech and autistic tendencies.He has been on the GFCF diet for over two months.It helped somewhat, but the diet is so expensive and stressful that I was very open to the idea of an alternative to that.
My son has been on the enzymes for almost one month now and he has BLOSSOMED!His sensory issues are almost non-existent---and this was a child whose sensory issues seemed to control him.His speech has tripled and he is much more open to trying to say new words and is open more to seated activities such as reading, puzzles and play-doh.He stays still for much longer periods of time.His eye contact was always pretty good but now it is fantastic.He is even calling me Mama for the first time ever....if you have a two+ year old who has never called you Mama or Mommy, you come to be desperate for that...let me just tell you it has been music to my ears.He is better at identifying pictures.He even pointed to a picture of me and said "Mama" without any prompting.
My son is in speech, occupational and developmental therapies, mostly b/c of his sensory issues.After three weeks on the enzymes, his speech therapist said to me, "you have a new boy on your hands".She and the OT both were shocked at how calm he was, how attentive he was to calm activities.He no longer needed to "crash and burn" during therapy, but could transition from one activity to the next with ease.A child who used to tantrum if he had to leave the sensory room was now requesting to leave halfway through the session in order to go back to the speech therapist's room!
I will be forever grateful to the author of this book and to the previous reviewers that steered me towards this book.My son is a different boy who has even been able to incorporate some wheat back into his diet without any repurcussions.It is so exciting to look towards the future to see what doors these enzymes will open for my soon.I simply cannot say enough positive things about this book.It has forever changed our lives as it continues to heal his leaky gut.
If you have a child with gut issues (chronic diarrhea---my son had this and it is now gone!), speech issues, and especially sensory issues, please take the time to read this book!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars great information, but do with your MD's guidance
A good resource and a great book, but this is alot of information. I would recommend getting this book if you are interested in learning more about enzymes and autism but not doing anything without your child's Dr.s advice. Enzymes are not a "cure all" to autism, as all children with autism are different. Many venues must be investigated and discussed withyour MD to find the program that is best for your child. ...
