Laura Seiverling, PhD, BCBA, LP
Date: Thursday, June 1, 2017 Time: 6:00-8:00 pm eastern ABACAccess5
Feeding problems in children with and without special needs are common and depending on the severity of the feeding problem, may cause serious health risks for a child. Further, a family of a child with feeding problems often experiences very stressful mealtimes and frustration over how to help their child overcome his or her feeding problem. The focus of this workshop will be to review food selectivity and food refusal and evidence-based behavioral interventions for treating them. In addition, evidence-based training packages for teaching caregivers how to implement interventions with their children will be discussed.
After attending this event:
- Participants will be able to describe ways to assess food selectivity and food refusal using both direct and indirect measures.
- Participants will be able to describe ways to implement numerous evidence-based behavioral interventions available for treating food selectivity and food refusal in children.
- Participants will be able to describe ways to use behavioral skills training and general-case training to teach caregivers to implement feeding interventions with their children.
