During the first years of Junior School my son had SEN. His school were about to refer him to the Autism panel.

After discovering family history of Coeliac, and after finding small studies linking diet to autistc type symptoms we requested that they hold off the referral and he was put on a gluten free diet during the school holiday.

After returning to school having been on a GF diet the school noticed significant changes and he was removed from "special educational needs".

A subsequent gluten challenge had no damage to his gut discovered no damage and he's been officially put down as non coeliac gluten sensitivity, given the documented changes to his educational ability.

Has there been any more recent studies into gut health in children and links to cognitive behaviour be it Autism or ADHD that could explain any reasoning behind the sudden change in capability?
