The Gluten Free Casein Free diet is one - parents have observed improved eye contact and language and decreased hyperactivity, among other things. Also worth a try is the GAPs diet - less studied, but also promising. There are pages on FoundHealth about both of these diets - check them out!

Another dietary factor to consider is the link between high fructose corn syrup and autism. Eliminating this common sweetener may have both a preventative effect and improve neurological symptoms.
