Hi all,

Dd (ASD) has always had the typical difficulties around food and a limited diet. She does get enough and is a decent weight however.

Now, she is starting to have an extreme reaction to the smell of foods she previously liked and won’t be in the same room as them. I’m worried 😬

Have a look at ARFID, it is common in DC with ASD.
