Help!

Postby Kansas » Sun May 14, 2017 3:48 am

We are completely new to this. Daughter received diagnosis in just the past week. She can be a picky eater but this didn't really stand out for us as all the pre-schoolers we know are picky eaters.

How do we know if diet plays a role and how do we get started in figuring it out?

What supplements are best and how did you all know to try them? She's always gotten a standard multi-vitamin tablet along with an omega three supplement when in my care (shared 50/50 custody schedule).

How did you become knowledgeable? I'm feeling very inadequate in this area right now, like I don't know where to even start but there must be books or videos out there. I just don't know where they are.

If any other parents / grandparents / caregivers could respond it would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

This is a great staring point! TACA is a wonderful organization and has been a tremendous part of our daughter's improvements. Where are you located? They offer parent meet-ups in many states and offer free mentors for newly diagnosed parents.
