Picky Eating

Many children on the autism spectrum have challenges specific to food over-selectivity. FSI has a well-established picky eating program that is often provided within direct therapy services, but can also be provided as a stand-alone service. We rely exclusivly on differential reinforcement and shaping procedures, and do not employ escape extinction for picky eating. In other words, we believe that eating and mealtimes are particularly sensitive, and that they should be fun and associated with reinforcement, not aversive conditions.
