Signs of Digestive Issues in Those with Autism
Gastrointestinal problems seem prevalent in those with autism, but it can be tough to get those issues treated.

Trying to physically communicate the symptoms can be mistaken as behavior problems. And, the diversity in autism can complicate a doctor’s ability to diagnose the digestive issues.
