It has been brought to the attention of our regulator, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) that certain organisations are claiming to have developed protocols to “treat autism”. To address this matter BANT and CNHC have released the following joint statement:
“BANT members can support the health of children on the autistic spectrum by means of the practice of Nutritional Therapy. However, BANT members do not treat autism. BANT is in no way affiliated with organisations such as Autism Research Institute (formerly Defeat Autism Now! or “DAN!”) or Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS). It does not accredit their educational programmes nor does it endorse their recommended protocols.
