Kids with autism often go through periods where mealtimes are a challenge. Whether kids can't eat foods due to sensory issues or they won't because if familiarity with the things they like;it's hard to say. But the end result is often frustration for everyone.
When Kimberly's son Cooper was little, he was extremely limited in what he would eat. There was a brief period when all he wanted was one particular brand of pizza and Oreos. At that time, she wrote the story CoCo's Bananas. For years she hoped he would draw her some pictures to go along with the story. At first, he struggled to take the text and connect it with the art of drawing his own pictures to go with it. It took a while, and finally, he was able to do it. Touch Publishing--through the Triangle & Square program-- has released CoCo's Bananas with Cooper's exact illustrations. Cooper is so happy to see his work in a real book. His self-esteem and sense of accomplishment has skyrocketed.
You can buy CoCo's Bananas for $7 plus shipping through the author or look for it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. ISBN: 978-1-942508-06-9
