yes we've done the gf/cf diet- which is very popular for Autism as well. The diet itself had the beneficial side effect of increasing the range of foods my son would eat but was definately not a panacea. What we did find out, throught the diet and some blood work was that my son had all kinds of other food sensitivities which were affecting him. A healthy rotation diet seems to suit him best, and limiting corn. Check out the information on this website- very interesting stuff and I think it explains why the diet works for some kids:

Try to go to www.gfcfdiet.com

they have a really good section on success stories. And good bulliten board too. How to get started. Obtaining food. What gluten is hidden in.

Great site.
