Most children go through a temporary phase of picky eating, however a significant number will have persistent feeding difficulties throughout childhood. These include avoiding or refusing certain foods and having a very limited dietary range often connected to characteristics of the autism spectrum. The impact of persistent food refusal can be devastating, with parental anxiety leading to coercive feeding and a cycle of increasing food refusal by the child.

This workshop will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to better understand the reasons for individual feeding difficulties. It will also enable participants to help parents develop practical strategies for more successful feeding.
