Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This systematic review evaluates the effectiveness of intervention at improving dietary intake in children with autism. Overall, limited to moderate evidence supported behavior modification and desensitization practices within interdisciplinary feeding teams to increase food variety directed at improving dietary status. The impact of intervention on a child’s dietary status in addition to feeding behaviors should be considered when working with children with autism and feeding challenges.
