salicylate sensitivity and general chemical sensitivity help

Does anyone know any good forums for parents of children with salicylate and chemical sensitivities? Our 2.5 year old is sensitive to salicylates and high phenol foods and can't even play with play doh without getting hyperactive because of the chemicals in it. We are waiting for a hospital referral because at the moment he is surviving on Neocate, meat, rice and pears. It is such a difficult road - can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thank you.
