” Ohhh I’m so excited! Look what I received in the mail today. Jean Nicol thank you so much! I can’t wait to try this with Emilio! 

It’s fabulous! The pictures are all color coded – Vegetable/Fruit –  Grain Products / Milk & Alternatives/ Meat and Alternatives. It comes with a menu planner with velcro and two additional blank sheets with 7 full rows of velcro to place your images. I mean this it absolutely amazing because it gives the child the choice to pick what he/she wants to eat.

Speaking Autism by Linda Mastroianni Autism Consultant says.
“If you have a child who is a picky eater, I highly recommend you try The Eating Game. I did with Emilio and he absolutely loves it. What’s great about The Eating Game is that it allows the child to create their own daily menu in a fun and game styled fashion. But The Eating Game does something else too. In my son’s case, he started checking the refrigerator and pantry to see if anything was missing for him to complete his daily menu. That was an added bonus and on top of that I stretched it even more by having him write his own grocery list AND getting his own stuff at the grocery store. So The Eating Game does so much more than just help a picky eater. Go check them out, you won’t regret it! :-)”

Jean Nicol was a Special Education Teacher who after 10 years of retirement continues to be a very passionate autism advocate especially in the international autism community via social media. In 1970 Jean began her working career as a Home Economics Teacher after completing a BSc in Nutrition at St Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. Four years later she completed her BEd and began teaching elementary school where she quickly found her calling in Special Education and completed the Post Grad Special Education Program at Ottawa University. This was the beginning of a very rewarding 20 years in special education; with a desire to learn as much as she could about autism working with many children from preschool age to teenagers and young adults, as a teacher and community volunteer. Jean ended her working career as an Autism Consultant in the local public schools for 2 years. Then all of her education and work experience came together to keep her very busy in her retirement with her invention. During early retirement Jean worked part time as an Early Interventionist in a home visit play centered program for preschoolers with developmental delays. While doing this a friend asked for help in addressing the eating challenges of her six year old autistic son. Jean responded with enthusiasm and created what would become The Eating Game. This program was so successful Jean decided that her time would be well spent creating more of The Eating Game to help so many children with ASD who often deal with eating challenges. Her venture began with a small home business, EYECAN CREATIONS Jean Nicol was a Special Education Teacher who after 10 years of retirement continues to be a very passionate autism advocate especially in the international autism community via social media.

Her venture began with a small home business, EYECAN CREATIONS Publications and grew in seven years to now proudly display 2 Eating Game Patents, Canadian and American! Eating Game product development continues to play a role as Jean helps parents and children internationally. Every day is an adventure online meeting and helping friends in the global autism community with eating issues and many other concerns related to autism. Jean believes that key issues in helping children with autism relate to communication and social skill development. She is always ready to help parents work out ways to support their children, to give them “a voice” using visual supports, including social stories. Making a difference in the lives of children with autism and their families makes daily life worthwhile and very rewarding for Jean Nicol.
