Momma, Your Autistic Preschooler is trying to tell you something. Listen!
I have a question for you, Momma.
When you are feeling bad-
👉🏿 Are you able to focus?
👉🏿 Do you feel like eating?
👉🏿 Do you want to talk?
👉🏿 Do you want to be bothered by others?
👉🏿 Do you feel like throwing a tantrum?
👉🏿 Do you want to be left alone?
I know you will agree that you just don’t want to do anything when you are sick.
When I hear these common complaints from parents of autistic preschoolers…
💡My child refuses to eat.
💡My child has too many tantrums.
💡My child isn’t talking.
💡My child won’t communicate.
💡My child wants to be in his/her own world.
I have to wonder why no one has taken a step back to look at the big picture. 🤔
When your child is not feeling well, they will not want to do what you are trying to force them to do. This includes: eating, talking, behaving, interacting, and the list goes on.
Listen up, Momma!!
Your child is not feeling well for a reason, and it shows by the behaviors your child is presenting.
Please refrain from forcing your child to do what you want him/her to do and work on addressing the root cause of the problem.
When your child starts to feel better and his/her body is functioning optimally, you will see that all of the complaints will slowly begin to disappear.
This is something that is happening, but it is just not normal, Momma!!
Your child is too young to tell you that he or she is not feeling well, but your child might present it in other ways.
👉🏿Refusing to eat certain foods
This is happening so often that I think it’s time to raise the flag. 🏴
Stop focusing on the small things and take a look at the big picture🖼️.
Your child is not feeling well, and it shouldn’t be ignored.
Now is the best time to help your child gain a better quality of life.
When your child presents symptoms that are not normal, take time to listen. Use your momma instincts and tune into your child, don’t ignore them.
I understand that it can be hard on you.
You are doing a great job searching for answers.
Just know that if your child is not well, then their behaviors will let you know.
Here’s the deal:
Children on the autism spectrum often cannot communicate to you how they feel, so you are left to guess.
You might be trying to help your child but looking in the wrong places for help.
I know this was what I did until I took a step back to look at the big picture.
So what is happening, and why is my child not cooperating?
Here’s the deal… Your child is under some type of stress!
This stress can be from….
-and many other forms
Here’s what you need to do to help your child:
⭐ Understand that your child’s behaviors are directly correlated to how he/she feels
⭐ Look at these behaviors as communication and pay attention to them, don’t ignore
⭐ Start working on addressing the root cause of the problem by first addressing your child’s first line of defense, the immune system.

This is what I help to guide my clients through my private coaching.
They come to me overwhelmed because they have no idea where to start when trying to help with all of the behaviors their child is presenting.
It can be challenging to look at the big picture than just focusing on the small things.
Lowering your child’s stress and improving their immune function can make a significant difference in your child’s quality of life.
