For Parents: • Get medical assessment. • Get support from other parents and from organizations focusing on helping parents and children or youth with this challenge. • It may take a lot of energy and effort to assist your child or youth. Encourage high protein diets, eating lots of vegetables and fruit, drinking lots of water, avoiding sugars, sodas, fruit juices. • Learn skillful methods of nonjudgmental encouragement. • Avoid expressing pity or worry about the child or youth. These destroy self-confidence. • Protect the child or youth from bullies. • Hyperbaric chambers may help.
