5 Things to do while sitting on a waitlist!
Have you ever taken a step back and thought about why it might be taking so long for you to get a doctor to diagnose your child?
To the Mommas out there currently watching your child’s every move and heading to Google to see if it falls within the criteria to be classified as autism….
Keep reading this blog post because I will be sharing with you these 5 things to do while sitting on a waitlist for your child to be diagnosed with autism.
Stop right now, and take a deep breath and understand these 5 things to do while sitting on a waitlist……
The reason why you’re struggling to get into a doctor…. is because our medical professionals are being overloaded with so many children needing help.
They are struggling to keep up due to the exponential rise in autism, ADHD, and many other developmental delays.
And when our medical professionals are overloaded, we are in trouble!
If your child is on a waitlist for diagnosis, what do you think will happen when it is time to get them into therapy sessions such as ABA, speech, occupation, and any other therapy to help kids on the autism spectrum?
Yep, you got it right…… it will be just as long as the wait for a diagnosis.
The worst thing about this is that you will be wasting time critical for your child’s growth and development.
We all know that early intervention is vital, but many of you are sitting on a waitlist for months trying to help your child.
So what do you do? How can you help your child’s behaviors to improve and to get them to be happier while you wait for that diagnosis you have been researching on google?
Listen up, Momma!!
You don’t have to wait for any diagnosis to get started helping your child gain a better life.
You know in your heart that picky eating, behavior issues, lack of eye contact, frequent illnesses, headbanging, inability to potty train, inability to sleep, and any other symptom are just NOT normal!!
Your intuition tells you that there is more to this situation, and you can do something about it. You know that you can help your child, but maybe fear is in the way.
Perhaps you lack the knowledge of where to start.
Nutrition is so vitally important for kids because it supports their growth and development.
Children that have poor nutrition suffer from nutritional deficiencies.
When a child suffers from nutritional deficiencies, they often present the symptoms that many of you encounter, such as tantrums, picky eating, sleep problems, sensory issues, potty training issues, and many other symptoms.
Nutrition can completely turn this around, which is why it is so essential for your child on the autism spectrum.
Once your child is receiving the proper nutrients from nutrient-rich foods, they will start to improve.
Here are 5 things to do while sitting on a waitlist, while you wait on this diagnosis, to help you get on the path towards helping your child gain a better life through nutrition step-by-step.
Create a list of the symptoms your child is presenting to reference back as needed (i.e., picky eating, constipation, headbanging, etc.)
Grab a journal and start keeping track of your child’s food, bowel movements, and behavior. Make sure you are very specific in your journal.
Review this information after a week and see if you can make the connection.
Remove any possible suspected foods that you noticed might be causing your child discomfort and keep them out for 10 days.
Re-Evaluate for any improvements after the 10 days and continue this process over again with the next food.
This is exactly what I guide parents through my coaching program. I give them a framework that helps them discover the root cause of the symptoms.
I also address how fixing the root cause will also improve the other manifesting symptoms, such as picky eating, behavior issues, lack of eye contact, frequent illnesses, headbanging, inability to potty train, and inability to sleep.
