I’m aware that there is a link between bowel trouble and autism but am unsure as to whether or not health professionals will use bowel trouble as an early sign of dianosis for autism or if they believe that it’s just a typical thing for little kids building up their immune system. I’ve been there and done that! It’s frustrating that not a single ‘expert’ will commit to anything when it relates to autism. There’s a book called George and Sam by Charlotte Moore which will be well worth your while to read. The author has two boys with autism and she noted that they had bowel problems and still do. Unfortunately doctors don’t take much notice as to whether or not a child seems to have bowel difficulties before said child is innoculated.
