Family With 6 autistic kids? Scary!?

Why do so few autistic kids have braces?
There are three Moderate Severe Autism classes in my school. Total, there are about 21 students including me. Some of them, myself included have crooked teeth. I'm gonna get braces or Invisalign soon, but the others might not. Most of them have straight teeth, so they don't need them. However, one of them has very crooked teeth and can't talk right. It could just be his autism, but it's probably mainly his teeth. It's obvious he needs braces, but he doesn't have them. How could there be no one out of 21 people without braces?
Has anyone seen improvement with autistic kids through vitamin and amino acid detox?
I put my daughter on a detox regimen about 5 weeks ago and even though no one can agree if she has autism or not, all her quirks red flags seem to be gone. She no longer visually stims, spins, or lines up toys. She also started a speech program with the school district 3 weeks ago she just turned 3 Her vocabulary has improved ten fold in this short period of time. I don't know if it is the school or the detox or maybe she is just outgrowing her quirks Has anyone else seen improvement like this through detox or maybe the school?I got sick of so called specialist's. With the okay of her Pediatrician and lot's of research I think I found a combination that works for her. Thank you for all the helpful links,I will look at them all.My daughter does have a lot of food allergies

Why do most autistic kids always look so nervous?
And don't answer if you're going to be overly sensitive and self righteous. And no personal anecdotes. They always seem so nervous with their eyes darting around and walking quickly and hunched over. Is paranoia and anxiety part of the disorder?
Gluten free for autistic kids?
My 4 year old stepdaughter is autistic, and an extrememly picky eater. She will eat only carbs, and only after she inpects each bite completely. All we can get her to eat is toast, pancakes, waffles, and crackers. She refuses all dairy, fruits, vegetables and meat. If any of these are offered to her, she puts herself on a hunger strike and will eat absolutely nothing at all for days. I have switched her to V8 fruit & veggie juice so that she gets at least a little nutients. We were just given some research that said that going gluten free for autistic kids can be a huge help. The reason that they crave only wheat foods is that the gluten mixed with their digestive system turns it into an opiate, therefore making them crave it. Since she eats only by how it looks, and will not taste something to find out if she likes it, we thought that this might be a help for her, but since we know so little about a gluten free lifestyle, we dont know where to start, or what to buy for her. It has to look exactly like the wheat version, and taste almost the same, if there is even the slightest difference in taste, after one bite, she will not eat again for days. If anyone here is, has been, or knows someone who is gluten free, could you give me some tips on where to start and what to buy? also, if anyone else has an autistic child with similar food issues, feel free to give me some tips as well. I am constantly worrying that she doesnt eat enough, and all she is getting are just empty calories, and very little actual nutrition. Thankswe have tried that, as i said, she must inspect every bite, and if there is something in on that bite that she refuses, then she will refuse it all and then not eat for days. she is unable to feed herself, she has extreme motor skills difficulty, so we cant just give her a bowl of food and expect her to eat it. if we try to hide things in her food, all that does is create a hunger strike for days on end, because she thinks we are trying to trick her into eating things she doesnt want, which, we essentially are
How to help autistic kids have more patient?
my brother is getting older and less and less patient. He is good in lines but with waiting for the computer and trying figure things out, he is very inpatient and gets frustrated quickly. He is high funcationing and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how we can help him learn to have more patientice. We set timers but, like if we are about to go somewhere, and he is fine with that, but if we dont finish, right when it goes off, he gets very angry and frustrated. iknow autistic kids like doing the same thing in the same order at the same time day after day, supposably, but he is not like that is changes stuff around. but he wants stuff on demand but if we say no or hold on, those are the magic words to get him mad. please help give me ideas. im tired of him not understanding
