Ok so its only (gluten free) chicken nuggets, kievs and fish fingers. But the first meat for FOUR years. Out of the blue. After FOUR years. Can't believe it. He sits and munches it like he never stopped. And chips. For the first time in three years.

Strange child.

That's fab, Jimjams

Oh, excellent! Well done that boy

I know exactly how you're feeling, Jimjams. J started eating proper food last August, after nearly five years of eating crap and it's amazing to see. And such a weight off your mind too, when you've got so much else to think about! Hope he continues to experiment!

He certainly likes to keep you on your toes doesn't he

Wonderful news JJ, I wish DS would touch something other than spaghetti hoops, yoghurt and peanut butter. Can you do home visits?

Jimjams Mon 23-May-05 18:01:28

I think you need to borrow whatever eating alin has been inhabiting our house davros. now i need a stop weeing everywhere alien to visit.

And today for the first time since 2000 ds1 ate annabel karmel chicken and cornflakes. This has been my end goal aim since he moved onto bread and stopped eating anything sensible at the end of the year 2000..... (my aim as he used to love it).

;) ;) ;)

Wow what a breakthrough.
Do you think it's because of something they have been doing with him at school?

Jimjams Wed 25-May-05 22:40:48

HIs class teacher got him eating chips at school and it seems to have moved on from there. They do a lot of eating work at school, breakfast clubs (with a food shop- for PECS requesting) cafe visits, picnics. This week he ate some biscuits on a picnic which is amazing. He can't usully eat when we're out.

Good for them! It really sums up why we need more specialist schools as well as mainstream. No mainstream school would ever be able to put the time and resource into achieving something like that.

Jimjams Thu 26-May-05 10:46:21

amen saker!

At m/s he used to spend most of the day walking round the school or playground (only found out recently quite how much time he spent doing that). When they did try and do stuff with him it was bloody bead threading. Now he is occupied all day with an eye on life skills all the time- eg this week its been his job to count the children children at snack time, and get and pour their drinks. It's a great school

What an amazing school Jimjams!

Jimjams Thu 26-May-05 11:13:52

any news jakb? have fingers and toes crossed for you...

Jimjams Thu 26-May-05 11:14:56

we wondered why he was thumping us on the head at home (poor ds2 was running away)- he was "counting" us.

JakB Thu 26-May-05 11:15:15

Nah, just posted on other thread! Assessment manager off sick (!). Have spoken to another mum and it's looking really worrying. They just haven't got the places

JakB Thu 26-May-05 11:15:36

OMG, Jimjams! Bless him!

Jimjams Thu 26-May-05 11:16:40

another lea where the autistic children come as a surprise when they reach school age..... is it really that hard for health to talk to education?

JakB Thu 26-May-05 11:21:29

It's shocking...
Evidently, several children have 'turned up' who have bypassed the CDC etc. Whic is completely possible. There is a mum at my DS's gymboree group who has a little boy who is 2.5- no language, no pointing, very little non-verbal communication, very few playskills etc, very spinny. He really reminds me of another friend's little boy who has global developmental delay (now categorised as MLD). I don't think she has seen any professionals.

Jimjams Thu 26-May-05 11:23:41

sounds like ds1 at 2.5 (who was supposedly in the system and had been dxed with "mild language delay") ha ha ha.

Fio2 Thu 26-May-05 11:29:57

I am still worried about my friends son, it seems so obvious
