Our Next Guest: A Conversation with Drs. Bridget Taylor & Keith Williams
Selective eating is common among children with special needs and children with autism spectrum in particular. Keith will discuss possible reasons for selective eating. He will also discuss selective eating as a spectrum problem and why the failure to conceptualize selective eating in this manner can be problematic. He will also talk about the role of repeated exposure in the development of taste preferences and how a range of interventions can incorporate repeated exposure to increase diet variety.
At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the role of repeated taste exposure in the development of taste preferences.
- Discuss the incorporation of fading into an intervention for increasing diet variety.
- Discuss the importance of motivating operations for feeding interventions.
