Tips and Tricks for Challenging Feeders


Children with ASD commonly face challenges with eating a healthy range of foods for many reasons. Come and learn more about why your child might be struggling with food, and strategies to support healthy eating habits and a wider food variety. For further guidance and support, an individualized follow-up session can also be scheduled during the week following the presentation.


  • Includes a one-hour presentation, plus an optional 1:1, one-time, individualized follow-up consultation session on strategies and tips with either SLP or OT, depending on question areas. This will be done via video conferencing.
