Today’s Major #Autism Victory: Eating Dinner

Today’s Major #Autism Victory: Eating Dinner

I don’t have to explain how difficult it can be to get a child with Autism and/or Sensory Processing Disorder to most of you because you live it everyday. 

This type of food proclivities run rampant in The Autism Dad household and meal times are very challenging as a result. 

It’s for this reason that I’m celebrating what I consider a major victory tonight. 

Emmett is so difficult to feed, especially when he’s in the midst of a fever flare. Last night was no exception. He hasn’t been eating very much lately and I’m worried about him. 

Last night I had everyone figured out but Emmett. He had no idea what he wanted for dinner and after the meltdown, he’d pretty much given up on eating. Honestly, it’s a battle that I just didn’t have the energy to fight at the time.

Unwilling to just walk away, I did one last sweep through the freezer and I found one frozen sausage, buried in the very back. 

The rest you can figure out for yourself. ❤️👍😀

I’m so grateful that he ate and that I was able to find something he would eat in the first place. He did really well and ate the whole thing. 

This obvious doesn’t matter in the long term but in the short term however, he ate his dinner and was enjoyed it. 

So happy about this one… 😀
