Children with an autism diagnosis often have feeding challenges. However, that does not mean that every child has feeding challenges for the same reason. Recognizing WHY your child is a picky or selective eater is an important first step to treatment. This live Zoom workshop will describe common feeding challenges and possible reasons for these challenges. Reasons related to medical, sensory, motor, learning differences, environmental, and behavioral issues will be explored. Strategies and treatment approaches will be described. We hope you can join us!
