CANCLLED Creating Successful Mealtimes For Children With Autism | 2 Part Workshop | 08/02/2022 and 16/03/2022

February 8 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Unfortunately, this workshop has been cancelled. It will be held again in September 2022 – click here to register.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

Food is an essential part of living and socialising; it forms the building blocks of the human body and it helps us to form meaningful connections through the enjoyment of a shared meal. For children with Autism having diet variety for adequate nutrition can be a real challenge for many reasons and taking part in mealtime experiences with others may affected.  Come and join our *TASTEE team to learn about both the “why” behind mealtime challenges for children with Autism and what you can start to do about them. 

In this two-part workshop we will explore:

Part 1:     

  • Mealtime Challenges and Autism
  • The difference between Picky Eaters vs. Problem Feeders
  • Starting your mealtime progress journey — Learn how to develop a food diary

Part 2: 

  • Making sense of the information you’ve collected using a food diary
  • The world of textures and flavours
  • Autism specific mealtime strategies and how to set mealtime goals!
  • Our Top 10 Tips for success at mealtimes and how our TASTEE team can help

*TASTEE—The Autism Specific Team of Everything to do with Eating is our Specialist Mealtime Therapy Team of Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Psychologists who provide Assessment and Intervention to children and adults with complex mealtime challenges.

Please note that you are registering for both workshops mentioned above. Registrations for the 2 part workshops will close prior to the first workshop.
