  1. Be careful with all that Miralax. It can do damage to their intestinal wall lining! My son, age 8, also suffered with lots of constipation. We went gluten-free, casein-free in Nov. 2011 and it took until about May 2012 until we saw very clear changes in him. He still battled with constipation for a very long time, until we took rice out of his diet and then he started going daily (without the help of Miralax)! We also use a homeopathic remedy, Secretin, that is actually a prescription from our special pediatrician. My advice, and I'm not a doctor, would be to find either a pediatrician that specializes in the "autism diet" of Gluten-free Casein-free, and/or a pediatric gastroenterologist that understands the gastrointestinal issues associated with Autism. (I realize your children may or may not have autism, but these specialists are very knowledgeable about all sorts of autoimmune diseases.) I personally found that regular doctors and dietitians don't "get it" and think the kids will be fine with some apples...
