Andrew Swartfigure BCBA, Director of Services, talks with Bobbie Hasselby, ABA Supervisor at BeyondAutism, and Tom Bailey, Head of Therapies at BeyondAutism.

Difficulties around food can develop in children and are more prevalent in children diagnosed with developmental disorders. In this podcast we discuss ways in which we can reduce these difficulties following the case of one 7-year-old boy in particular.
