A guide for parents and professionals working with children with autism who have a restricted dietary range. It helps the reader to understand the behaviour and work with it, in order to gradually increase the range of food a child will eat. Informative and accessible, the book helps manage selective eating in all its manifestations.
 
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.
 
Market -  Parents and lay professionals (nursery staff, teachers, health visitors) who might have to manage, or at least understand, the eating behaviour of the children in their care.
