Re: need help

some kids with autism have the kinds of sensory issues that make eating certain types of solid foods more difficult. is your daughter in an early intervention program yet? if she has a diagnosis of autism, she would qualify for EI through your school district.

and the EI program has occupational therapists on staff who should be able to help you come up with solutions for this.

Re: need help

Try rice milk instead of cows milk, she may be kind of addicted to the cows milk. Same goes for the cereal, try rice cereal or other gluten free cereal. See if there is any change in her behaviour. Google the link between gluten caesin intolerence and autism, there is so much info out there, kind of mind boggeling to begin with.

Re: need help

ceecee - i agree that the answer is NOT to make her go without food. she'll just feel ill and even more frustrated.

have you tried actual baby food in the jars? many are very tasty and the texture is very soft so that may be a way to get more solids into her?

Re: need help

children with autism often present with very limited food choices; if your insurance will pay for it try to get her to see a feeding therapist; call your state department of education to see about the availability of early intervention programs; she is very young and great progress can be made; the day she turns 2 1/2 contact your local school district by letter requesting a meeting with the child study team so that all is in place and she can begin public school at age 3 in a program for autistic preshcoolers

Re: need help

all great advice by jntt; however you don't need to contact your school district by mail. i simply called the director of special education and got the ball rolling.
