Beginning the Gluten Free, Casein Free Diet

7:00 - 9:00 PM
Whole Foods in the Community Room
7221 Waverly Walk Ave
Charlotte, NC 28277

This is a pre-recorded presentation by Kelly Steffens. Do you need to start a gluten and casein free diet and don’t know where to start? This is the presentation for you! We will cover what a gluten and casein free diet is, why it is important for kids with autism, the benefits you may see, how to implement it and more. Take your seat at this important presentation because healthy eating is the #1 intervention for kids with autism and it will lay the groundwork for a healthy child. This is a pre-recorded presentation from the 2019 East Coast TACA Conference.
Kelly Steffens is a mother to 3 kids, all with specific dietary needs. She has had her kids on special diets for over 14 years and has seen the benefits it brings. Kelly also runs the private TACA Facebook group for parents of kids with autism.
