2.5 Year Old with Autism Eating

This video was taken simply after a 30 minute melt-down. Our Autistic son just lately began a brand new conduct throughout meal times- he needs to take a seat in Mommy’s lap and be fed so he doesn’t have to the touch his meals.
We use reward and constructive reinforcement to work by means of these behaviors.
