Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Feeding challenges are prevalent in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), often disrupting family mealtimes. Limited research has examined tools families incorporate to support mealtime engagement. This study explored the tools (e.g., toys, books) and their purpose that families used during mealtimes with children with ASD.
