Picky Eaters and Selective Feeders

Feeding Intervention

Early autism intervention yields substantial benefits that positively impact children, families, and communities. By accessing early intervention services, you provide your child with an opportunity for improved developmental outcomes.


Equally important, your family gains invaluable support from an early stage, enabling them to better meet the needs of their child throughout their lifetime.

There is a plethora of evidence to support the effectiveness of early intervention in laying the foundation for brighter futures, facilitating growth, progress, and overall well-being.

Consultation can be done virtually or in-person (for those in the Vancouver, BC area).

Increasing Food Repertoire

Peer Reviewed Publication

The primary goal of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of using a graduated exposure hierarchy to decrease food refusal, increase food repertoire and decrease mealtime behaviours during intervention (immediate effects) and posttreatment (generalization) in a young child with ASD.  A secondary goal of the present study was to provide training to the parents of the child with ASD, in order to generalize and maximize the effects of intervention in a way that is socially significant for the child and family.
