The other thing to look into, if food elimination gets you nowhere, vitamin/mineral deficiencies and excess heavy metals (eg. copper) can be a cause for behaviour problems as well. I think it's a hair test for the metals and a blood test for deficiencies. When I attended a talk by Dr Alison Knight, who works in the field, she said that even if vitamin/mineral levels are at the low end of the scale supplements are recommended. This is aparently because the 'healthy range' that comes with lab results changes over time, so as the general population start to have lower levels of, eg. iron, the range lowers to reflect this.

I'm interested in trying this with DS2. I'm currently weaning him off dairy then will probably and unfortunately remove gluten as they are believed to affect the behaviour of autistic children. Then p & a will come next if need be. PITA, but i'd rather try this than drug such a young child.

Hey do you know the bicarb soda trick? If he's had a dose of something, let him sit in a bath with a handful of bicarb soda for a while, it takes down the reaction. Epsom salts do the same thing. It an cause dehydration so give a good drink of water and don't do it every day for a week, but its a good fix if he's having a bad day
