Creating Successful Mealtimes For Children With Autism | 2 Part Workshop | 16/02/2021 and 16/03/2021

February 16, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Recommended for parents and carers of children with Autism aged 2 to 12 years. 

  • Part 1: 16th February 2021 – 6pm to 9pm

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

*TASTEEThe Autism Specific Team of Everything to do with Eating is our Specialist Mealtime Therapy Team of Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Psychologists who are able to provide assessment therapy intervention to children and adults with complex meal time challenges.
