On Saturday, April 22, 2017, Autism Services, Inc. and the Autism Society Western New York Chapter are pleased to present “Feeding Strategies for Picky Eaters.”  The presenter is Ms. Shawn Manvell, M.S./CCC-SLP, a licensed speech-language pathologist and iOS app developer who works in five counties surrounding Los Angeles, California.  This evidence-based workshop is directed towards professionals and parents who work with and care for toddlers, children, and adolescents who demonstrate feeding difficulties. You will learn strategies and hands-on techniques that will reduce mealtime struggles and increase food intake. The presentation will also discuss the prevalence of feeding disorders and factors that contribute to feeding problems, as well the difference between picky eaters and feeding disorders. Learn how to expand the child’s repertoire of food choices and decrease refusals and other problems to make mealtime a success!
