Food Refusal and Avoidant Eating in Children, including those with Autism Spectrum Conditions
A guide for parents and professionals working with children with autism who have a restricted dietary range.
It helps the reader to understand the behaviour and work with it, in order to gradually increase the range of food a child will eat. Informative and accessible, the book helps manage selective eating in all its manifestations.
Many children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a restricted dietary range, and this book provides parents with advice and training on how to deal with this condition and achieve a healthier and more balanced diet.
Now described as Avoidant or Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), it is due to sensory hypersensitivity, and it can impact upon the health of the child, upon the family, and upon social integration.
