In response to the requests of a parent with autistic twins, the program director of a Hilton Head Island preschool added Specific Carbohydrate Diet dishes to the school's daily menu. The May 26th article in the Beaufort Gazette goes into more detail:

Emily and Cole are autistic, and Eileen Rous saw an immediate improvement in their behaviors when she instituted the diet.

"Their rocking and beating their heads against the wall ended," Rous said of Emily and Cole. "They were head-bangers."

Rous asked the school's program director Sandy Bass if they could incorporate the diet into the preschool menu for all the children. Bass said she was immediately on board and the menu now includes natural foods that the children enjoy such as pizza, fruit smoothies, fresh fruit and sugar-free fruit juices.

"Now I'm sold," said Bass of the diet. "I told her I'd try the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and initially it was a struggle. But now the children enjoy it, they desire it."
