Feeding Issues

Video Summary

Dr. Kolevzon discusses some of the feeding issues experienced by children on the autism spectrum, including extreme restriction of diet, insistence on sameness during meals, texture sensitivity, and an intense, unexplained dislike of particular foods. This video depicts the feeding difficulties, routines and therapies of several children on the autism spectrum.

"Children with autism tend to be very picky eaters...Feeding issues are often related to sensory sensitivity, but may also be related to an insistence on sameness where kids will want to eat the exact same foods all the time."
— Alexander Kolevzon, MD
