Summary: For many parents of autistic children, mealtime is a challenge. Children may be unwilling to eat certain textures of foods, restrict their diets to a small range of specific foods, or engage in meltdowns during mealtimes. In this presentation we will discuss some reasons why these challenges occur, focusing on sensory sensitivities. We will share practical strategies for making mealtimes more enjoyable for children and families.
