In the course of our clinical work, we experience of number of odd rituals or strange feeding behaviors in our clients. One of the behaviors we address through the course of intervention is tantrumming, crying, or refusing to eat food after it has touched another food.
Remember, we serve children with and without disabilities so today’s post is not just about autism. To prove it, we have two cartoons. You see, cartoons demonstrate that these types of behaviors are common place–or how else would the theme end up in a cartoon?
Please share? Is this your child? Do you have plates with compartments to prevent meal time tantrums? Do you cook extra food in the event that you have to replace “dirty” or “contaminated” food?
