Anxieties around food
When Geerthan was given food at school, he found the situation deeply distressing and refused to eat. Even when given meals he successfully eats at home, he would throw his plate across the room and become aggressive towards himself and others. His behaviour became such a barrier that it was a time that Geerthan did not look forward to. A range of strategies had been tried to reduce Geerthan’s anxieties, from general exposure to foods, to pairing food with fun activities, yet nothing seemed to work.
