Many children with speech delays and sensory deficits are picky eaters due to which their nutrition and overall health can get affected. Moreover, research has shown that children with autism are at risk for many nutritional problems. Difficulties such as nutrient deficiencies, food allergies, food intolerances, and feeding problems are common in children with developmental delays.
Common Dietary challenges seen in children with Autism
Discomfort & bloating
Gastroesophogeal reflux disease (GERD)
Leaky gut syndrome

Why do Children with Autism Suffer from Constipation?
Before I begin sharing tips. I’d like to ask you a question. How sure are you about what and how much your child eats in a day? Does your child eat sufficient fruits or drink water during the day? Without a food diary, we wouldn’t know. It’s time to keep one.

According to Richard Layton, (MD) “Biomedical interventions can help not only children with autism, but those with expressive and/or receptive language disorders, associated sensory integration (SI) issues, and allergies/hypersensitivities. Through the assessment of diet, environmental pollutants, SI, possible allergy testing and immunotherapy, it is possible to treat developmental delays through a biomedical approach. Parents could begin by evaluating their child’s diet and noting reactions and improvements.

Ms. Soumali Dutta is an excellent special educator. Soumali provided both a great mix of listening, examples, and practical learning activities, and provided a ton of valuable information (weblinks, books, apps, etc) to further enhance my daughter's learning. Soumali motivates in play based supportive learning in which my daughter tries out new items, and feels encouraged to get things right. My daughter enjoys and looks forward to attending her sessions. My daughter has improved significantly, enjoys reading and math now, which she was not used to before attending Soumali Dutta's sessions.
"We are having a wonderful experience with 1Special Place and our speech therapist Shailaja. She was able to build a great rapport with my 4 year old son and he thoroughly enjoys all the sessions. We have already seen big improvements. We highly recommend 1Special Place."
We cannot praise 1specialplace enough and strongly recommend their therapists Kavitha and Rabab, with no reservations. Quality professionals and quality service. We have been using Kavitha for Speech and Rabab Kothari for OT - excellent professionals, spent time understanding our needs before starting therapies... importantly they prep us for sessions and provide us their expert advice post every session detailing what's going well n what we need to do for elements lacking improvement. Bringing up a child with SEND isn't easy, and feel fortunate to have support from these quality professionals. 1Specialplace thank you very much....
Choosing 1specialplace was the right choice for my son. I've seen a drastic improvement in him in a short time span. All thanks to Laxmi Janardhanan. She's very patient, highly trained and very helpful in all aspects. Definitely recommend.!
