Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

This aim of this study was to understand how children’s sensory preferences influence parent and child behaviors in families of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) during mealtime. Participation in mealtime is a vital occupation for young children’s development, particularly for young children with ASD.
