Very interesting

Just wondering if a child with autism says he likes a type of food one day but another day
he appears when angry not to like same food . Why is that.😊

I have grandchildren with autism – they have specific foods that they do really enjoy // some days will try something new like / next day won’t try – or like if do .

Im finding these reads so interesting and helpful

Am just learning as much as I can

Very interesting thank you
