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.
i have a lot of service and it is not working as of yet. Thankyou very much FOR your help ad telling about the diffent service out here. we had tryed alot of thing not giving her the bottle half water she is so bad that she would not eat anything and cry all day long.I FELL SO BAD for her so i give in
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.
thank you again every one.I am going to try the rice milk and rice foods and i also will try the baby food again pls pray that this works and thank you again and i will start look on the net; but i really dont know what to look for;so pls if you have any info that my help me pls let me know.
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
