It has also been observed that several foods or types of foods, have an effect on the child’s behavior, and response. It could also be said that children with Autism face some trouble in getting the right kind of nutrition due to certain sensory processing difficulties. Hence, a modified, or a systematic diet plan becomes an essential part of the conventional interventions for Autism.
