by Keith E. Williams and Richard M. Foxx
A child’s incessant screaming, spitting, and food throwing during mealtime are enough to frustrate any parent or caregiver! Continuous resistance to eating not only leads to malnourishment, but physical and intellectual developmental become additional concerns. Invariably, the underlying reason(s) for refusing to eat will differ from child to child, so the focus should be on improving or resolving the eating problem.
Part One was specifically written for teachers, parents, and caregivers with no prior professional experience or training on feeding problems.
Part Two was written for professionals, providing detailed information on how to apply behavioral assessment and developing individualized interventions based on a child’s eating behaviors. The behavioral interventions and procedures presented in this book can also be integrated into oral motor or dysphagia therapy. Includes references and brief descriptions.
Note: This book is not designed to treat sensitive eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. Please consult professional assistance.
