I wanted to share a quick example of why it’s so hard to keep Emmett, my youngest with Autism, fed.
Below you will see a picture of a piece of pizza that Emmett wanted to eat this morning. After heating it up however, he began to panic and ultimately decided that he couldn’t eat it because it was missing some cheese at the very tip of the triangular slice.
There is absolutely no way to work through this with him.
I’m so frustrated because he’s not eating much of anything, as a result of these sensory issues. I don’t have the budget left to survive this right now, but Emmett needs to eat.
It’s becoming increasingly more difficult to help him find something he’s capable of eating.
Can anyone else relate?
