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.

Food Selectivity, Mealtime Behavior Problems, Spousal Stress, and Family Food Choices in Children with and without Autism Spectrum Disorder

Children with ASD were more likely to have high food selectivity, and their parents reported more mealtime behavior problems, higher spousal stress, and influence on what other family members ate.

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.

Increasing the variety of foods consumed by a picky eater: generalization of effects across caregivers and settings.

The study was conducted in two separate settings, and caregivers were trained in the intervention technique to increase generalization to natural settings.

A Clinical Demonstration of a Treatment Package for Food Selectivity

Food selectivity is the most commonly reported and researched feeding problem in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) (Seiverling, Williams, Ward-Horner, & Sturmey, 2011). Children have been

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.
