About the event
ASO/Synergy Parent Group
Cozy up with a morning beverage and your computer on the fourth Saturday per month at 10am. We are offering a FREE online group for parents of children on the autism spectrum living in Oregon, facilitated by Barbara Avila, MS, of Synergy Autism Center.
Open to: Parents of children on spectrum of any age (birth - adulthood).
This month's topic is: Dietary preferences, needs, and concerns
It is common for Autistic people to struggle with food intake for many reasons. Some find textures and tastes in their mouths to be intolerable. Others seek extreme tastes and textures to help regulate their systems. Still others cannot tolerate changes to the look, feel, or brand of favorite foods. As Autistics become teens and adults, you often start seeing more limitations and/or significant weight loss or gain.
All of us have our own personal relationship with food. Families commonly struggle with their own values around food clashing with the preferences of their children.
In our groups, we will explore each members’ child’s current food celebrations as well as frustrations. Every discussion is facilitated by Barb in a neurodivergent friendly manner.
