Any parent of a child with autism, Asperger's, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, or other developmental disabilities knows that special-needs kids often have food sensitivities and can be very fussy eaters. Plus, they've been told to avoid such common ingredients as gluten and casein, making it even harder to give them the balanced, healthy meals all children need. Here, dietitian Judy Converse offers new advice and guidance on how to use food as an essential tool for development. Based on the latest research, this book includes: simple substitutions that can be easily customized to suit any child's needs; advice for helping the whole family,-along with school staff and caregivers,-adjust and take part; strategies and tips for staying on track at restaurants, holiday gatherings, school parties and lunches, and overcoming obstacles; shopping and resource guides; and a long-term program for measuring progress and making adjustments.--From publisher description.
