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, webinars, virtual meetings, and website articles.

The Autism Community in Action (TACA) provides general information regarding medical research, treatment options, therapies and nutrition to the autism community. The information comes from a variety of sources and is not independently verified by TACA. Nothing presented in print or at meetings should be construed as medical or legal advice. Always consult your child's doctor regarding his or her individual needs.
