Eating and Drinking Skills.
Helping people with autism to eat and drink
Autism Bristol works to develop a person’s restricted diet, sensory eating patterns and sensitivity issues, including gagging.
- A sensitive, gentle approach to expand a person’s eating and drinking range if they follow a restricted diet
- Developing oro-motor skills including desensitisation, improved lip closure and chewing
- At-home support for modelling of techniques
- The team follows the SOS approach to eating and drinking
