Conference explores how special diets can help kids with autism

ONEONTA – More parents and doctors have found that diets free of gluten and dairy products can help children who have an autistic spectrum disorder, if not cure them in some very extreme cases.



But changing anything in an autistic child’s routine can be a tremendous struggle. Many parents fear the mere suggestion.

“Some parents are a little scared. Our little guys with autism are tough little people to change; these kids are used to what they want,” said Shelley Hubal of the Family Resource Network Inc.

Hubal is the coordinator of a conference on Saturday that will explore how special diets and sensory control can help kids with autism. The conference will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 in the Howard Johnson’s Hotel Ballroom, 75 N. Broad St. in Norwich.
