Food Refusal and Avoidant Eating in Children, including those with Autism Spectrum Conditions Summary

Food Refusal and Avoidant Eating in Children, including those with Autism Spectrum Conditions: A Practical Guide for Parents and Professionals by Gillian Harris

Many children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a restricted dietary range, and this book provides parents with advice and training on how to deal with this condition and achieve a healthier and more balanced diet. Now described as Avoidant or Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), it is due to sensory hypersensitivity, and it can impact upon the health of the child, upon the family, and upon social integration.

Based upon successful training packages the authors provide for parents and professionals, this book enables the reader to understand the condition and work with it, gradually increasing the range of food a child is able to eat. It includes 'box outs' with case studies, points of interest and action points to make this an accessible and resourceful read.

Food Refusal and Avoidant Eating in Children, including those with Autism Spectrum Conditions Reviews

Harris and Shea have produced a fantastic resource for parents and professionals alike. Not only does this book give great advice to help children with food refusal and avoidant eating, but also covers the evidence base about the reasons underlying these behaviours in an accessible and enlightening way. -- Prof. Jackie Blissett, Professor of Childhood Eating Behaviour, Aston University, UK
An important book full of information for professionals and parents who deal with 'fussy eaters' (many of them are on the autism spectrum). A useful read if you want to learn more about why some children (and adults) have problems related to food and the best strategies to successfully manage this. -- Olga Bogdashina, author, lecturer in Autism Studies, co-founder of the International Consortium of Autism Institutes
This excellent book provides parents with detailed advice on how to help children with a restricted food range achieve a healthier and more balanced diet... The authors, who have both worked extensively with children with food refusal disorders, show the reader how to work with the condition in a child-centred way and gradually increase the food range a child can eat, with different interventions recommended according to age. * Human Givens Journal *
