Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders have high rates of feeding disorders, often refusing multiple food groups for years on end. Consequently, there is an increased risk for nutritional deficiency syndromes (i.e. scurvy, rickets) that are typically not seen in developed countries.
This session seeks to increase the awareness of nutritional deficiencies seen in ASD as well as provide a framework for identifying, preventing, and treating these deficiencies. Evidence based treatment of feeding disorders will be reviewed. A guideline for working in partnership with feeding therapists will be presented.
