Holiday Tips #3 & 4 for Parents of Children with Autism

ARM went dark for one day to honor the memories of all those who died in Newtown, CT.
It’s 9 days to Christmas and what do I fear? Crowds, chaos and commotion, that much is clear.
Dec. 15            Day 10   Watch What You Eat
We know that nutrition affects behavior. And we all have a tendency
to snack too much on sweets and bad foods during holidays. So be
sure to have healthy snacks on hand—carrots/celery sticks, nuts,
raisins, fresh fruit, yogurt, string cheese. In our GFCFSF household,
I do lots of baking ahead of time, so we have muffins, cookies
and quickbreads in the freezer. My “trick” with breads and
muffins is that I load them with sweet potato puree or
bananas or carrots or squash — instead of sugar — to make
them healthier.

A few years ago my son and I wrote a book of tips for teachers.
“Teaching My Teacher About Autism” is a great gift idea for teachers and other professionals
As the mother of a son with autism, I’ve committed myself over the years to learning, understanding and sharing the most effective ways to nurture, protect and prepare a child with autism. Strategies with the potential to reap great rewards for our kids.
Strategies for the holiday season and beyond, which I’ll gladly share with you.
And right now I’m offering a one-hour consultation–free of charge. 
Call 714-501-8735. The consult is free. The information is priceless.
Deck the Halls!
