We are pleased to invite family members who have a child who are pre, during or post diagnosis of autism to our  free Food Glorious Food webinar via Zoom with Julie Curtis, our Autism Nurse Consultant.

Eating, food and mealtimes can be a one of the most stressful everyday situations that both children and parents have to deal with. Many autistic children can have somewhat “different” ideas about what they consider acceptable food to eat and are ultimately in control of what they will or won’t eat.

In this webinar we will be exploring some of the eating and food situations that challenge parents and children alike.

We will also look at a number of strategies to help both parents and children get through mealtimes, cope with persistent snacking, introduce new foods, food jagging and linking. We will also explore how sensory sensitivities play a part in our acceptance or rejection of food as well as discussing some very specific issues such as pica.
Consideration is also given to eating outside of the home with a specific focus on eating in school.
Finally we will give you a list of things to start trying at home in your first steps to understanding and working with your child to make mealtimes, eating and food a much more pleasurable experience for all.
