Join ACI Learning Centers for a FREE Webinar:
“Behavioral Approach to Food Sensitivities” on Wednesday, June 18.
WHAT: ACI Learning Centers presents an interactive webinar on Behavior Approaches to Food Sensitivities in children with autism spectrum disorders, challenging behaviors and other developmental disabilities.
Many children have specific foods they will eat and others they refuse to eat. These food sensitivities create difficult situations for families due to limitations in the student’s diet. At ACI we employ a wide variety of evidence based interventions to assist with consuming a variety of foods as well as decreasing the problem behavior associated with eating these less preferred foods. Our discussion will focus on providing families the tools they need to help their children be successful at consuming many different types of foods, as well as the skills necessary to increase the variety of foods consumed.
Hosted by Ian Santus, the Regional Director of ACI Learning Centers, the first 30 minutes of the webinar will be dedicated to the presentation. The second 30 minutes will be dedicated to answering live audience questions about the webinar topic.
WHEN: Wednesday, June 18th, 2014, 6-7 p.m. CDT
