Additional Book Details

A child's incessant screaming, spitting, and food throwing during mealtime can frustrate anyone! Continuous resistance to eating not only leads to malnourishment, but physical and intellectual developmental become additional concerns. This two-part book presents behavioral interventions and approaches for solving a child's resistance to eating. Part One was written for teachers, parents, and caregivers with no prior knowledge about feeding problems, while Part Two was written for professionals, providing detailed information on how to apply behavioral assessment and develop individualized interventions based on a child's eating behaviors. The behavioral interventions and procedures can also be integrated into oral motor or dysphagia therapy. Note: This book is not designed to treat sensitive eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. See Additional Files for reproducible pages.
