"About 60% of all kids experience picky eating" - Cassie Miller, EdD, CCC/SLP and Director of the WVU CED Feeding and Swallowing Clinic joins us on this episode to talk about a challenge that many families face. Children with and without special health care needs and diagnoses will all experience changes in their eating habits and patterns that will sometimes cause caregivers to question the need for professional interventions. Cassie discusses with us what behaviors are typical for children and what feeding behaviors may indicate the need for an evaluation by a feeding team. Who should be on that team? What will the evaluation and/or feeding therapy look like? When does picky eating become problematic? How are parents hurting or helping children as they explore foods and work through what may or may not be developmentally appropriate eating patterns? Cassie tells all in this episode! You do not want to miss!
