Nutrition for Special Groups 3(3+0)

Lesson 2 : Overview of Nutrition for Children With Special Needs


Whether a child has attention-deficit disorder (ADD), attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), autism, cerebral palsy, CHARGE syndrome, Down's (trisomy 21), epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, or other conditions (including undiagnosed ones), nutrition specifically may play an important role that one can help support.

Of the special conditions, nutrition for those associated with various behavioral disorders may have received the greatest attention, with Feingold considered to be a major pioneer in this area. More recent research also gives clues that nutrition can be helpful for special children with a variety of conditions.
