This 120-minute webcast provides an overview of the use of applied behavior analytic principles to assess and treat food refusal and selectivity. Feeding problems are common in children, affecting those with developmental disabilities and medical conditions as well as children who are typically developing (Laud, et al., 2009). Recent figures suggest prevalence of feeding problems in children with ASD are as high as 90% (Volkert & Vaz, 2010). A child with feeding problems can cause stressors to his or her own health and ability to learn in addition to causing stress on the family (making multiple meals, throwing away food, etc.) and impacting social opportunities (people socialize over meals).

Feeding problems in children with ASD is treatable. The same as any challenging behavior, the behavior must first be assessed to determine the maintaining variables and determine potential reinforcers to increase food consumption. This presentation will provide examples of common indirect assessment tools with  guidance on how to use the information. Following, we will provide you with examples of descriptive assessments along the use of the functional analysis to ensure the results are experimentally determined. Following results of the assessment, we will provide commonly used evidence-based procedures, antecedent and consequent-based, to increase food consumption. In addition, we will provide an overview of the legal and ethical considerations around treatment of feeding problems.

This event will total 120 minutes with a review of practice and methodology designed for teachers, paraprofessionals, BCABA’s and BCBA’s working with person’s with autism and/or supervising direct treatment staff, and other professionals working with children with autism and related disorders.
