June 9 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Please join the Autism Consortium of Texas for our June webinar, “Impact of Improving Feeding on General Development for Children with ASD” with Dr. Kaitlyn Mosher on Friday, June 9, at 12pm on Zoom.
Description: A significant number of children with ASD experience feeding difficulties which can impact their health and nutrition along with parent-child interactions, family stress, social interactions, and ability to fully access education. This presentation will highlight research indicating treatment of feeding challenges can have positive impacts across several areas of development. Hypotheses for why this relationship may exist and implications for professionals working with autistic children and their families will be discussed.
