One of our most popular continuing education courses, Autism Subtypes, Feeding Issues & Nutrition Considerations, was recently updated and renewed by the continuing education board of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA). ASHA credit is now valid until August 21, 2013!
This course details the symptoms and subtypes of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), describes developmental and behavioral issues, outlines assessment and diagnostic considerations, and briefly reviews the literature on the efficacy of various treatment approaches.
It also outlines common GI problems and feeding difficulties in autism, exploring the empirical data and/or lack thereof regarding any links between GI disorders and autism. Sections on feeding difficulties offer interventions and behavior change techniques.
A final section on nutritional considerations discusses unusual food preferences or sensitivities, growth and weight concerns, and food allergies and sensitivities with an objective look at the science and theory behind a variety of nutrition interventions.
