Online Support

We have an internet group that focuses on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet™.
Many, but not all of the members, have children with ASD.
All who are following or who are interested in the SCD™ are welcome to join our group.

The Pecanbread discussion group is located on Yahoo Groups.
Parents can ask each other questions, update each other regarding the progress of their child, and provide each other with support.
