The R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids) a National Celiac Disease Support Group provides support for families of children who are on a wheat-free/gluten-free diet, due to celiac disease, autism, allergies, or other reasons. Celiac disease is a digestive disorder in which consumption of gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley, causes changes in the mucous membrane lining the small intestine, impairing its ability to absorb fats and other nutrients during digestion. Although its exact cause is unknown, genetic, immunologic, and environmental factors are thought to play some role. R.O.C.K., a voluntary 501(c)3 organization, provides services that include information, support groups, and advocacy on a national level.
