The Feingold Diet addresses other conidtions such as hyperactivity, ADD, and salicylate sensitivity (and of course autism spectrum disorders).

The Gluten Casein Free Diet I feel is more autism specific so you'll probably see more success with that if your stepson responds favorably to dietary intervention. The basic Feingold diet does not call for the elimination of gluten and casein. However, it doesn't hurt to try and follow the basic guidelines for both diets.

I have the blue Feingold book.......it's a good resource to have and you can get it by becoming a member at www.feingold.org

In a nutshell, the diet is based upon an "elimination" of foods in several stages.

Stage One includes the elimination of synthetic/artificial coloring, avoiding any foods with dyes (Yellow No. 5, etc)
Also it calls for the removal of synthetic flavors typically listed as "artificial flavoring" on packages.

Additionally, the preservatives BHA, BHT, TBHQ, & Aspartame need to be avoided.

Finally, natural salicylates need to be avoided. These are included in many vegetables, juices, etc (The blue book lists them all).

Stage one is followed by a period of time, then Stage Two begins. It's too detailed to list here, but this should give you an idea. What I like about the book is that it lists all the unacceptable and acceptable foods so you know exactly what to avoid.

Hope this helps..........good luck!
