The Right Foods & Medications

BreadThe support group meeting held in April 2012 focused on gluten— and caffeine–free diet and medicine as it relates to autism. Sarah Stramat, PharmD from Rite-Aid in Monroeville, discussed the challenges concerning medications for those with autism and answered many questions about such subjects as side effects, coexistent conditions and the appropriateness of ADHD medications for those with autism. Melanie Mills, of the Gluten Free Zone in Murrysville, shared information about the effectiveness of the gluten-free diet for many on the autism spectrum. She also shared delicious gluten-free cookies and cupcakes from her bakery.
