Children on the autistic spectrum frequently suffer from gastrointestinal complaints such as diarrhoea, constipation, abdominal pain, abdominal distension and flatulence. Far from being 'just part of the condition', worldwide research is confirming parents' reports that many of these children are actually suffering from serious underlying conditions which, if left untreated, are a source of constant pain, which in turn can greatly exacerbate autistic behavioural symptoms. Autism and Gastrointestinal Complaints summarises the symptoms often experienced and offers an accessible explanation of the underlying medical condition, together with practical suggestions as to how to help reduce the child's suffering. The findings of the latest research are presented in an understandable way, with a glossary explaining some of the terms often used by medics in plain language. This book offers a concise guide to all aspects of gastrointestinal complaints in children with autism, and is an ideal resource for parents, teachers and any other family member or caregiver who needs to know how to help an autistic child.

Objectives: To determine the nutrition-related knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of non-medical practitioners working with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD); and, to identify relevant parent and professional resources to inform an evidence-based curriculum. Methods: A comprehensive literature review using MEDLINE and PsychInfo was conducted in spring 2017 to develop and content validate (n=3 registered dietitians (RDs) with topic expertise) a 20-item online survey. The survey was administered (December 2017) to a convenience sample of 149 Northern Ontario staff (e.g., therapists, managers, and psychologists). Results were analyzed used Qualtricsu00a9 software and pivot tables. A grey literature search, including PENu00ae (Practice-Based Evidence in Nutrition) and pediatric hospital websites, was also conducted; inclusion criteria included evidence-based presentations or toolkits with a nutrition component and/or discussed the RD role in ASD. Results: Sixty-one staff (41% response rate), all female, completed the survey. The majority (78%, 47/60) agreed an RD should be involved in the nutritional assessment of children with ASD, however many respondents were unsure if these children have more gastrointestinal (GI) complaints (51%, 29/57) and whether gluten-free casein-free diets (42%, 25/60), multivitamin supplements (52%, 31/60), or prebiotics and probiotics (80%, 48/60) were recommended nutrition interventions. Respondents did not feel confident in assessing food and nutrient intake (30%, 17/57) or feeding behaviours (26%, 15/57) in children with ASD. Of the nutrition resources screened (n=232), 25 met the inclusion criteria. Conclusions: There was an overall lack of knowledge related to common GI complaints, feeding behaviours, assessment of food/nutrient intakes and appropriate nutrition therapies for children with ASD. Numerous resources exist that can be adapted to develop nutrition curriculum to support non-medical practitioners. Significance to the Field of Dietetics: With one in 66 Canadian children diagnosed ASD, non-medical provider training, including nutrition screening and referrals to an RD, can improve the nutritional status of these children.
