McDonald’s ice cream in a cone with a flake

There is not much that Charlie will eat which can be bought in a restaurant, even fast food places don’t sell anything from his limited list of food choices.

If you ever find a place serving Cheerios or passion fruit or gingerbread men, please can you let me know?

But there is one thing on the menu of one fast food restaurant chain that is acceptable and that is this …

 Mcdonalds

This was a treat on the first day back at school

Most of the time we used to just avoid eating out with Charlie. Until we learnt about sensory processing and integration we were clueless, we had absolutely no idea why he simply couldn’t cope. Restaurants became off limits after a few meltdowns we decided it wasn’t really worth the effort.

This shot was taken, right before a meltdown in the local Toby Carvery, during one of our failed attempts to dine out. Before we learnt to read the signs and offer him a way out we just thought he was being naughty.

This one was taken afterwards, when his poor body was too tired to fight anymore.
