ASD The Complete Autism Spectrum Disorder Health and Diet Guide

Includes 175 Gluten-free and Casein-free Recipes

The term incorporates diagnoses previously described as separate: autistic disorder, Asperger's Disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorders not otherwise specified.
