Abstract

In this two-part workshop, co-authors Dr. Keith Williams and Dr. Laura Seiverling will provide an overview of the selective eating interventions in their new book, Broccoli Boot Camp:  Basic Training for Parents of Selective Eaters. They will describe a range of step-by-step interventions for expanding a child’s diet variety, provide case examples, and discuss ways to modify protocols in order to meet the needs of individual children and their families.  Additional topics include defining the term selective eating, repeated taste exposure, “mealtime battles,” autism spectrum disorder and selective eating, and making adaptations to interventions for children who are overweight and underweight. Lastly, they will discuss and provide ways to respond to common parent concerns and issues faced by therapists. 

Target Audience: Professionals for whom the topic is within their scope of practice. We welcome students and others who are also interested in the topic to join us.
