About My Guest

Brittyn Coleman, MS, RDN/LD is a dietitian specializing in autism spectrum disorders and is also a sibling of an individual on the autism spectrum. Through her life and her studies, she realized how much overlap there is between nutrition and autism.

During graduate school at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, she specialized in autism spectrum disorders and led her thesis research in food aversions and nutrient intake in children with ASD. There are very few dietitians specializing in ASD across the country, which makes accessibility extremely low.

Because of this, she offers video and phone consults to parents and individuals all over the nation to increase the reach of nutrition therapy and nutrition education for families and individuals affected by ASD.

She is knowledgeable about autism in relations to diet, biomedical interventions, food selectivity, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal disorders, and even nutrigenetics.
