Have you encountered a family who is struggling to feed their child? Perhaps the child only eats a few select foods or is unable to sit at the table peacefully. These challenges are global and unfortunately threaten, not only the child's nutritional well-being, but the relationship between caregiver and child. According to a recent publication in Pediatrics, Feb 2015, "Parents of young children worldwide are concerned about feeding difficulties". Feeding disorders are recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Addition (DSM-V) and it is concluded that eating a restricted number of foods or displaying a fear of eating is disordered and may have long standing health implications for those who suffer from such challenges. Seiverling et al. estimated up to eighty-nine percent of children with Austism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) exhibit problematic feeding and eating habits, including food hyper selectivity, food refusal and disruptive mealtime behaviors (2011). In this intermediate course, we will examine prevalent diagnosis associated with such feeding disturbances (ASD, neophobia, ARFID) and explore the underlying causes of selective eating in order to develop clinical treatment pathways. Areas of impact will be examined, and treatment solutions will be derived as we work as a team to assist our children and families navigate extreme food hyper-selectivity. Strategies to create peaceful mealtime experiences while increasing the child's comfort level with food will be discussed. Case studies and learning activities will be used to facilitate problem solving and global application of evidence-based intervention. Practitioners who serve children and families impacted by feeding challenges are encouraged to attend.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Define food hyper selectivity and identify the underlying cause of food aversion in children with hyper selectivity.
  • Identify 3 primary chalIlenges for children on the spectrum in regard to overall developmental and describe related effects on food enjoyment.
  • Define neophobia and ARFID and describe the primary underlying cause of these feeding disorders
  • Describe from the child’s viewpoint what emotions a new food may evoke.
  • Outline the three intervention phases for managing food hyper-selectivity
  • Develop a beginning understanding of family empowerment strategies for successful mealtimes verses traditional treatment techniques for children with hyper-selectivity.

"Great course. Have taken other intro to feeding courses and this has been the best so far. Cuyler speaks well and in a way that is procedural. I feel I have tools to begin entry into the feeding world."

"thoroughly enjoyed this course"

- Live Streaming or Studio Audience, FL / Dec 2018

"Would love to Know the name of the longer course that was mentioned. This was very helpful. I have always struggled with how to keep kids engaged with exploring new foods without stressing them. This was a good start to giving me a new perspective and just how to change my clinical reasoning and practice to do that. "
