Why do some children have an increase in stimming, worse picky eating or now start covering their ears after starting the protocol?

A common scenario is that despite a child readily improving on the protocol, they seem to develop a new problem. Sometimes the problems can arise from an injury, and if this is the case, the problem will resolve within a few weeks. But sometimes, a new negative behavior (food aversion, stimming, cupping ears) can develop and not spontaneously resolve. nIn a developing child, what you are seeing is just a new level of awareness, reactivity, and sensory perception that did not exist in the child’s less developed state. Many parents will ask me, “But why?” My honest answer is, “I don’t know, but as long as other neurological areas continue to improve, the new negative behavior will also resolve if given more time.”nThe short answer is, don’t fret. This, too, will resolve.
