Selective eating is a significant problem for many children with ASD and their families. An estimated 46-89% of children with ASD have feeding problems (Ledford & Gast, 2006); food refusal and limited acceptance are the most commonly reported as the most common (Schreck & Williams, 2006). Although there is currently no standard definition, selective eating has been described as a combination of limited food variety and a high rate of food refusal (Bandini et al., 2010). Children with selective eating may have nutritional deficiencies due to their limited dietary variety (Zimmer et al., 2012). Selective eating has been primarily referred to as a discreet challenging or repetitive behavior in the intervention literature (Sharp et al., 2010); however, children with selective eating can have additional challenging behaviors which may complicate their clinical picture (Johnson et al., 2014). In addition, parents of children with ASD may be at risk for increased parenting stress, depression symptoms, and mental health problems due to their child's feeding problems (Davis & Carter, 2008; Estes et al., 2009). The discovery of factors associated with selective eating can help determine appropriate treatment targets. The objective of this dissertation is to determine child and parent factors associated with selective eating, both through a scoping review of the literature and through a cohort study of a sample of children with ASD ages 4-10 and their parents. Results of the scoping review and the cohort study indicate that selective eating is a multifaceted problem that warrants comprehensive, interdisciplinary assessment and intervention that takes the family context into account. Each child's health status, sensory reactivity, psychosocial well-being, and physiological features should be considered along with selective eating and related challenging behaviors. Future research is needed to explore factors intrinsic to the child that are associated with selective eating, such as oral motor difficulties and stress responses during the presentation of new foods. In addition, the long-term impacts of selective eating on health and participation should be studied. Additional studies are also needed to understand attitudes of parents toward their child's selective eating, the development of coping styles, and physiological correlates of stress during mealtime

Anorexia Nervosa and other eating disorders are arguably the most complex mental health problems that a child or adolescent may experience. Numbers seeking help are on the increase, and the complexity of these disorders challenges even the most experienced clinician. In this 2006 book, the experience of numerous practitioners with international reputations in the field is brought to bear on the broad range of issues a good clinician needs to know about, from the history of the disorder through to treatment, psychopharmacology, the psychotherapies, epidemiology, comorbidities, eating disorders in boys, and neuroimaging. The book is divided into parts detailing the scientific underpinnings, abnormal states, the evidence base for treatments, and finally public health issues, including service delivery models and perspectives on prognosis and outcomes. Clinicians encountering eating disorders will find this latest addition to the Cambridge Child and Adolescent Psychiatry series invaluable.

Co-occurring psychiatric conditions are extremely common among people who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The Oxford Handbook of Autism and Co-Occurring Psychiatric Conditions presents a compilation of the latest research in this area, summarized by internationally renowned experts. Each chapter presents an overview of the problem or disorder including information on prevalence in ASD and in the general public and a synthesis of the research on etiology, diagnostic best practices, and evidence-based intervention approaches. Case studies bring these concepts to life, and each chapter concludes with suggestions for future research directions in order to further develop our scientific and clinical understanding of the particular comorbidity. Given the fact that comorbidity is often a chronic and pervasive concern, this Handbook takes a lifespan approach, with each chapter touching on developmental aspects of the targeted problem, from early childhood through adulthood. The concluding section of the Handbook is comprised of content on clinical considerations and research approaches, including chapters on medications commonly used to treat co-occurring conditions, strategies for managing crisis situations in this clinical population, and community partnerships within an implementation science framework.

In Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating, a family doctor specializing in childhood feeding joins forces with a speech pathologist to help you support your child’s nutrition, healthy growth, and end meal-time anxiety (for your child and you) once and for all. Are you parenting a child with ‘extreme’ picky eating? Do you worry your child isn’t getting the nutrition he or she needs? Are you tired of fighting over food, suspect that what you’ve tried may be making things worse, but don’t know how to help? Having a child with ‘extreme’ picky eating is frustrating and sometimes scary. Children with feeding disorders, food aversions, or selective eating often experience anxiety around food, and the power struggles can negatively impact your relationship with your child. Children with extreme picky eating can also miss out on parties or camp because they can’t find “safe” foods. But you don’t have to choose between fighting over every bite and only serving a handful of safe foods for years on end. Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating offers hope, even if your child has “failed” feeding therapies before. After gaining a foundation of understanding of your child’s challenges and the dynamics at play, you’ll be ready for the 5 steps (built around the clinically proven STEPS+ approach—Supportive Treatment of Eating in PartnershipS) that transform feeding and meals so your child can learn to enjoy a variety of foods in the right amounts for healthy growth. You’ll discover specific strategies for dealing with anxiety, low appetite, sensory challenges, autism spectrum-related feeding issues, oral motor delay, and medically-based feeding problems. Tips and exercises reinforce what you’ve learned, and dozens of “scripts” help you respond to your child in the heat of the moment, as well as to others in your child’s life (grandparents or your child’s teacher) as you help them support your family on this journey. This book will prove an invaluable guide to restore peace to your dinner table and help you raise a healthy eater.
