I just found this on their website. Pretty good overview and the links at the bottom of the article have some solid information

Behaviour Suggestions

19 November 2009 - 02:47 PM

Just wondering if anyone has any good suggestions on how to deal with a child that has been glutened.

My 9 year old daughter doesn't have an obvious reaction right after she has been glutened. She will complain of a tummy ache for a couple of days and then the mood swings hit. We can deal with the physical complaints, but the emotional ones are driving me nuts.

She flies into a tantrum at the slightest provacation and it can take over an hour to calm her down. There is no reasoning with her at all. It is like all logic has left her brain.

I know this is a reaction she has to gluten so I try not to punish her too much, but how do I make sure that she understands it isn't ok to be so disrespectful? And how do we manage these episodes with out losing our own sanity.

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
