Overcoming the selective eating habits of a child with autism can be difficult. “Picky” eating can involve eating only nutritionally inadequate foods, a limited variety of foods, or foods from certain food groups. “Getting Kids to Eat” provides parents with video examples and step-by-step instruction to increase both the variety and amount of food a child will eat.
In this module we’ll cover these learning objectives:
- Explain why some children with autism become picky or selective eaters.
- Identify three guidelines for selecting new targets.
- Implement the steps required to increase both the variety and amount of food your child will eat.
