We explored and identified relationships among gastro-intestinal (GI) factors (i.e., stool status, abdominal pain, and diet status) and social behavior in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Understanding the association of GI factors and social behaviors and symptomatology may one day be useful in informing development or enhancement of social–behavioral intervention strategies for children with ASD with reported positive GI factors of stool status and abdominal pain.
