Childhood Neurodiversity: Understanding and Supporting Eating Difficulties


07 December 2023 13:00 - 14:15

Psychology in Schools Team - NSFT

This programme of free virtual workshops will explore nurturing the unique strengths of neurodivergent children and young people and provide advice and guidance on how to support them with the challenges they face. Any parent or carer is welcome to join regardless of whether their child has a diagnosis.

This workshop is for parents/carers concerned about their neurodivergent child's limited diet (i.e. avoiding or restricting certain foods). We will explore why children may struggle to eat, anxiety around eating and how parents/carers can support children with these eating struggles. This workshop is not aimed at parents of children whose eating difficulties relate to body image concerns.
