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.
