First, I will need to figure out what his favorite food is. I have an idea of things he likes, but I need to know what he REALLY loves! It may take some time to figure this out, but I will hopefully start making progress after I get past that first step. We will start out by having him eat 1 bite of something on his plate for 1 bite of his favorite thing. Once he gets used to that, he will eat 2 bites of something on his plate for 1 bite of his favorite thing. We will keep working on this until he has mastered eating a plateful of lunch.
I am hopeful and ecstatic to try this! If you want to read more about how feeding therapy is used, check out the blog Applied Behavioral Strategies. I have a feeling this will be a new favorite blog to follow!
