Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

Occupational therapists (OTs) and teachers developed and implemented a snack time intervention to promote eating and social engagement in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and selective eating. Using a multiple-baseline, single-subject design, half of the children improved in social initiations, social responses, and food exploration.
