After my son has been home school since birth. He just turned 6. I just found out he was Autistic. I adopted him from a druggie. I knew he may have problems, but how bad... No prenatal care... She tried to kill him twice (in womb).. I was ready. Until school. I don't care how they "Group" him as he is like everyone else. First he had hit his head twice, then started peeing his pants. Then they decided to use the only food he ate Cheerios. I had the IEP written to not ever mess with his food. They had stuck it in peanut butter. He came home (2 year's - Healthy) and he refused to eat anything. He would only drink water. Then next day was worse. He threw up and we scrambled and spent over 300.00 to find a replacement. Fist ketchup. 40oz... Then cheese that ended up making him constipated. The school called once to see if he was coming back. No concern how they just ripped my son's world apart. Today he is home schooled - peeing his pants and the bed at night. Cheerios - we have tried to get him to eat again and he won't. It is sad... but they don't care. My son is so smart. Why? How would you feel if someone messed up your favorite food? He is down to crackers, apples (took me a year to get him to eat) and cheese. I just want to know if anyone has any advice on re-post training? He is even wetting the bed and wearing pull ups. I am upset that they can't read and left him to suffer. Care? Not one person from his school called to see how he was doing. Took him to his medical doctor and informed her. I pray he will eat... I wanted to add...but not take away something he loves. Thanks for listening.

I really understand your frustration I can feel it while is was reading your post. I have had trust issues my whole life and your unfortunate story is exactly why. How dare them pick apart your not perfect but manageable world to disarray everything. Then leave you alone to pick everything up and put everything back together just by one lack of respect care or concern about the outcome.

I do have an idea but I don't want to share this with you unless you do it. This is something bullet proof and if you try this it will at least be a step in the right direction as apposed to no direction. Take him to a Grocery store at a time it's not so crowded. Walk him around to an area he can see items like at eye level even tell the store staff you will be doing this for your son I know they will be happy to let you place a few items around the store that your son can find and possibly take a liking to and place the items in the cart.
Or if he is not interested at all take him to a farmers market. Put a really bright out fit on him so you can see him at about 20 feet away still and let him go find stuff. Doing this he is bound to find something somewhere. Try it momma and if not just stop trying so hard allow room for something to happen. Peace to you all. And goodnight.

Hello,
Before I answer your question I want to give some of my background. I am a parent coach and educational advocate.
Question: is your son receiving ABA? If so they can work with him on potty training and getting him to eat. Please contact me sri.parent.coach@gmail.com. I'll be able to help you get services.
