1113d – Webinar – Nutritional Interventions for Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
(June 2011) The gluten and casein free diet is often referred to as “The Autism Diet” and is currently being followed by many families in the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) community. Adoptive parent Kari Fletcher explores the connection between gluten and casein intolerance, dysfunctional immune systems and the common behaviors children display. Basic information about the gluten and casein free diet is shared along with helpful tips from families who have experienced success with the diet.
Kari Fletcher works from her home in Mankato, Minnesota as a Parent Support Specialist for the Adoption Support Network, providing phone, in person and email consultation to adoptive parents. She previously served as the Southern Minnesota Regional Resource Coordinator for the Minnesota Organization of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS). Kari and her husband have six children, two who were adopted from the foster care system that were diagnosed with FASD.
