Many children with autism spectrum disorders develop food selectivity or what is also called “picky eating.” It is not uncommon for children to restrict their diets to one brand of chicken nuggets, to refuse to eat colored foods, or to consume only pureed foods. This session will focus on the ethical issues related to implementing behavioral feeding strategies. Participants will learn what medical, behavioral, and related service assessments should be completed before starting feeding therapy. Participants will discuss the ethical issues related to the use of various techniques such as deprivation, physical prompting, and extinction.
