[Sathe N and others. Nutritional and dietary interventions for autism spectrum disorder: A systematic review. Pediatrics 139(6): 2017] The published review was derived from a systematic review, “Medical Therapies for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)—an Update,” which will eventually be published on the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Web site.
