Formed in 2008, Food for Good Thought was founded by Dr. Audrey Todd, PhD. The whole concept came about while considering the probably limited future employment opportunities for her non-verbal son with autism. Following one of her son’s interests, cooking and baking became a skill that was able to be developed as time went on.
Before her son developed an interest in cooking and baking, he was placed on a gluten-free diet due to his significant digestive problems; as a result, some of his problematic neurological behaviors diminished in intensity.
From this experience, Dr. Todd created a company that provides both supported employment and gluten-free foods to individuals with autism as well as consumer with dietary sensitivities.
