Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

The purpose of the study was to examine the effectiveness of a parent-mediated, in-home feeding intervention (parent-training, direct intervention, and parent coaching) over six months for families with children with ASD. The findings support preliminary evidence of the intervention at improving eating skills and mealtime behaviors in children with ASD and the need for more targeted feeding interventions for children with ASD that involve the parents within the natural context of the home.
