Actually it is related to language, many struggle with pragmatic language. My dc has nvld and has an extremely high verbal IQ, but also has pragmatic issues. These dc are usually extremely verbal, but can still have language issues [ Reply | More ]

it's an inability to process non verbal communication. like--you simply can't tell if people are responding positively or negatively to you. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm having a problem with my 6yo dd. Usually she eats a good breakfast -- a big bowl of cereal with milk and bowl of berries. This morning, she said she wanted to start with only the berries. So I gave that to her, she ate it, and then she left the table. I asked her when she was going to come back to the table to eat the rest of her breakfast. She said "X" told me a good trick -- when you are hungry, eat a little and then wait 5 minutes. Chances are you won't be hungry anymore. I was floored! You need to know that my dd is very skinny. She is 44 inches tall and weights less than 40 pounds. You can see this kids ribs! The friend who told her this is a little chubby, but she is six! I know it is a good weight loss trick, but my dd needs to gain weight, not lose. I told her that she needs to eat to have energy for school. She told me she doesn’t want to get fat. I told her she is skinny and didn't need to worry about getting fat -- she needs to worry about being healthy and part of being healthy is eating a lot of good, healthy food. I am going to talk to her teacher tomorrow at drop off to make sure she is eating lunch and snacks at school. She does eat a good dinner, but now I'm concerned that she is hungry for dinner b/c she is starving herself during the day. 29 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

i'd explain that different people have different eating habits. some people tend to eat too much b/c they don't wait for their bodies to realize they are full. but that if she hasnt' even eaten one serving yet, then that's too soon to just eat a little and then wait. if she wants to do that after one serving but before having seconds, then that's ok.
