Trauma-Sensitive Feeding Strategies for Neurodivergent Families

Webinar: Trauma-Sensitive Feeding Strategies for Neurodivergent Families

There is emerging research showing how neurodivergent children may be at a higher risk of experiencing traumatic stress symptoms. It is also known that neurodivergent children and youth are more likely to have feeding and eating struggles, creating unique and often stressful challenges for families. This webinar will provide dietitians with the basic knowledge necessary for developing trauma-informed practices sensitive to neurodivergent people’s unique needs.

You will learn:

  • What is neurodiversity?
  • Introduction to adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and complex developmental trauma
  • Trauma and its impact on feeding and sensory processing
  • Feeding challenges commonly seen in neurodivergent children and youth
  • Harm reduction strategies aligned with Responsive Feeding Therapy

All registrants will receive access to the webinar recording, transcript, and resources.
