Autism and restricted diet: acceptance and
Do you have a child with autism?
• Does your child have a restricted diet?
• Do they have difficulties with eating a variety of different foods?
• Do you think they have sensory difficulties around eating?
• Does your child get anxious or just refuse to try new foods?
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions this workshop is for you.
The aim of the workshop is to give parents and carers a better understanding about
why children with autism have these difficulties. The workshop will consist of a
presentation and video clips as well as time for discussion and some resources and
books to look at.
This workshop will be delivered by Dave Scowcroft – Befriending and Mentoring
Manager, The National Autistic Society.
Dave has personal experience of living with his daughter who has Asperger’s syndrome
and had a very restricted diet for many years. He will share his story about how the
family struggled to accept his daughter’s eating difficulties and the support and
advice they received over the years, some of which was more helpful than others!
Dave will also show some video clips from a TV programme his daughter was featured
in on this subject and share the amazing progress she has made as well as tips and ideas for families.
