School’s Out for COVID-19: 50 Ways BCBA Trainees in Special Education Settings Can Accrue Independent Fieldwork Experience Hours During the Pandemic

50 suggestions for trainees in school settings to continue to accrue hours for both restricted and unrestricted activities throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic are presented.



Using Shaping to Increase Foods Consumed by Children with Autism

Differential reinforcement and shaping is used to increase the variety of foods accepted by children with autism who demonstrated significant feeding inflexibility.

Using Individualized Reinforcers and Hierarchical Exposure to Increase Food Flexibility in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Results showed that following intervention, all participants expanded their food repertoire and spontaneously requested new foods during follow up/generalization and Implications for clinical practice and directions for further research are discussed.

A comparison of a modified sequential oral sensory approach to an applied behavior-analytic approach in the treatment of food selectivity in children with autism spectrum disorder.

This investigation compared a modified sequential oral sensory approach to an ABA approach for the treatment of the food selectivity of 6 children with autism and observed a potential treatment generalization effect during ABA when M-SOS preceded ABA.

An evaluation of a progressive high-probability instructional sequence combined with low-probability demand fading in the treatment of food selectivity.

The antecedent-based intervention was implemented in the absence of escape extinction and was effective in increasing food consumption for both participants.

Addressing feeding disorders in children on the autism spectrum in school-based settings: physiological and behavioral issues.

The nature of feeding difficulties in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is defined, important components of the assessment and treatment of feeding disorders specific to this population are identified, and specific therapeutic techniques designed to improve Assessment and treatment within the school setting are delineated.

Development and Validation of an Inventory to Assess Mealtime Behavior Problems in Children with Autism

The Brief Autism Mealtime Behavior Inventory demonstrated good internal consistency, high test–retest reliability, a clear factor structure, and strong construct and criterion-related validity in the measurement of mealtime behavior problems in children with autism.

Feeding Problems in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

This review synthesizes current research regarding the types of feeding problems and interventions used with children with autism spectrum disorders and points out differences in empirically supported treatments and treatments used by parents for aberrant feeding behaviors in children with ASD.

A Practical Approach to Classifying and Managing Feeding Difficulties

In this model, children are categorized under the 3 principal eating behaviors that concern parents: limited appetite, selective intake, and fear of feeding, which allows the physician to efficiently sort out the wide variety of conditions, categorize them for therapy, and where necessary refer to specialists in the field.
