Individuals with autism are four times more likely to experience gastrointestinal symptoms. We know that behavior is communication. There could be underlying GI issues behind unexplained pain, meltdowns, self-injurious behaviors, or even sleep issues. Oftentimes, GI issues are complex and require a specialist to treat them appropriately. TACA will explore GI issues commonly associated with autism this month. Learn more about gastrointestinal issues in your child through recorded presentations, virtual meetings, articles, and downloads.
