Eating Difficulties associated with Neurodevelopmental Conditions 

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a neurodevelopmental condition which in the past has been primarily associated with autism. Children with neurodevelopmental conditions (such as autism) often struggle with daily functioning including difficulties with eating. 

Delivered in partnership with an occupational therapist advanced practitioner in sensory integration, this workshops aims to provide supporting professionals with a better understanding of eating difficulties associated with neurodevelopmental conditions and how to support affected individuals.

Training can be delivered as full-day, half-day or twilight sessions with learning outcomes tailored appropriately.

OFSTED and CQC guidance advises professionals and carers to work in a person-centred way and to be creative in order to minimise behaviour that presents as challenging.

Who is the training for?

This training is designed to support professionals working with children and young people presenting with an eating difficulty associated with sensory processing and neurodevelopmental conditions and their families.

Please note - this training is not an eating disorder course.

By the end of the training, participants will:

  • Have gained an understanding of eating difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions and the challenges that they can present if unmanaged and unsupported
  • Recognise the impact on the day-to-day lives of families living with a child or young person with eating difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions
  • Be able to promote a more positive relationship with food through improved understanding
  • Be able to identify strategies to share with families to improve the outcomes for a child or young person with eating difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions
