    The more I am reading about alternative approaches, the more confused I get. There are so many books that say similar things but then get attacked by traditional modern medicine because there are not enough studies to back up their theories. Also, most of these professionals are so focused on their specialty that they don't ever see eye-to-eye on different types of treatments. Nutritionists, pediatricians, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, developmental pediatricians don't have th The more I am reading about alternative approaches, the more confused I get.

Nutritionists, pediatricians, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, developmental pediatricians don't have the time to look outside of their box and listen to an opposing view. It makes the role of a parent (or advocate) that much harder to ask questions about alternative treatments.

    This book is an incredible resource. There is not a single paragraph wasted.

    Beginners guide containing some practical first steps for parents of children with special needs. Easy to read. The author obviously cares about nutrition therapy and has personal experience to back up her suggestions. A short chapter of recipes is included. I would have liked to see more suggestions for helping picky eaters explore new foods as well as some ideas for those who do not plan to forgo dairy products.

    I have eating issues as an adult and am heavily on the autistic spectrum. I was hoping for some insight into how to expand my eating habits. Instead I got out of the partial read (and browsing the rest) that this book is mostly about nutrition rather than overcoming sensory issues.

    I will tell you that I didn't even finish this book (got very close) but I enjoyed the information in it so much that I ordered my own copy so that I can highlight it to death!!!! The information is timely and helpful for our house specifically.
