As a Child Psychiatrist who specialises in the care of children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism, I meet a lot of youngsters with feeding difficulties. Living and working in rural areas we often do not have easy access to more specialised services and so an approach to this which makes sense, from a child’s point of view, and is easy to use for parents was a welcome discovery.
With an increasing sense of control, children are able to expand their food choices and move towards a healthy diet. Often their parents realise that dietary changes that need to be made in the household – so everyone benefits.
I have purchased 4 of the books so far – each one was well used and each eventually became so loved by a family without resources to buy their own copy that I hadn’t the heart to ask for it back. I suspect that I’ll need to order another in time.
