Can’t Eat Won’t Eat

(XDE Legge 2002)

Finding out that your child has Asperger Syndrome can be devastating enough, but when you discover that he or she won’t eat 99.9 percent of all food and drink in the known universe, the fun really starts. The author found herself in this situation when her son first took a dislike to milk, then to virtually every other food. Her book was written to reassure other parents in the same boat, and to suggest practical methods of dealing with the problem. The experience of other parents, children, and professionals with first-hand knowledge of dietary difficulties, and their advice and comments are included.  Pp. 208.
