The most important thing would be to provide a stable, loving environment for this child and a healthy balanced diet. I would be hesitant to advise that any from of treatment (diet) can make up for these 2 basic requirements. Our online dietician should be able to give you more specific advice about diets (including fish oil) with possible benefit.
