ADHD, Autism, Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Developmental Delay, Behavioral Issues, Mood Disorder, etc. These are scary labels especially when they are being used in reference to your child. I don’t know what if any of these diagnoses apply to my son but what I do know is that I LOVE him and will do whatever I can to help him be more at peace with the world and himself.
We recently started seeing a new doctor (another doctor in the long line of therapists, specialists, doctors, etc we have seen for years) who specializes in children with ADHD, spectrum disorders, and developmental delays. Refreshingly he suggested we try some more natural alternatives to see if they help our son before we try any stronger medications and thus The Food Behavior Project was born.
