This is a case study of a seven year old attending sessions once a week for six weeks with play in a nonpreferred wet food item followed by the presentation of the same wet food for eating using the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) approach. Data was collected by coding the SOS hierarchy steps, and results showed the child increased the variety of novel foods in the diet, decreased negative behaviors at mealtime, and accepted the nonpreferred wet food at home closer to the times of direct intervention.
