Gluten is in many food products and can cause digestive problems. Eliminating certain things from the diet can help those with Autism. 

Omega 3 fatty acids:

Omega 3 fatty acids are a good source of supplements. They help in brain development in children. Various studies have established hyperactive and repetitive behavior in those who have Autism.
