Feeding problems in children with ASD: Impact of parent education in modifying aberrant eating habits  

The purpose of the current study is to investigate the topography and treatment of feeding difficulties related to autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This study will: (a) assess the types of feeding difficulties exhibited by children with ASD as well as the effect that these difficulties have on a child's nutritional status and family functioning; and (b) evaluate the impact of a parent-education intervention targeting problematic feeding behavior and related negative aftereffects among children with ASD.
