This week on Autism Spectrum Radio we explore one of life’s most basic functions, eating. Many parent’s know the challenges of having a child who is a picky eater but for children with autism, the issues become more complex. Many of our kids have challenges with food aversions and selectivity as well as chronic digestive issues. This week we talk with two experts about how to ensure our children are getting the nutrition they need. Rob Haupt is excited to welcome Dr. Eric Levey and Dr. Peter Girolami of the Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program at Kennedy Krieger Institute. Be sure to catch this episode of Autism Spectrum Radio, Tuesday, August 27, at 11 AM.
