I have read about and heard of so many children that have digestive problems and also learning problems that I started doing some research on it to see if there was a connection. Here is some of the information that I have found.
This article was written by a doctor/mother. She explains how digestion problems play a huge part in children that have learning disabilities and problems like autism. She also explains what kind of an effect vaccines can have on children with digestive problems. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/07/31/dr-natasha-campbell-mcbride-on-gaps-nutritional-program.aspx This is a MUST READ for any parent who has a child suffering from any kind of neurological problem.
Diann Craft is a well known teacher and speaker for children with learning disabilities. I attended a seminar of hers just to gain knowledge and it was extremely interesting. Here is a link to a very good article on her site. http://www.diannecraft.org/hidden-allergies-learning/ It is titled “Hidden Allergies and Learning”. I highly recommend purchasing her “Biology of Behavior” CD and listening to it!
Another really good article about probioitcs and brain function… http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/11/18/244526773/gut-bacteria-might-guide-the-workings-of-our-minds?sc=tw&cc=share
