This poster will present mixed-methods research study results of a family-centered intervention targeting challenging mealtime behaviors of 4 children with ASD. Results on the intervention's impact on the parents' knowledge of behavior change, changes in foods offered, and acceptability of the interventions will be presented. Data will include results of pre- and post-intervention assessment tools used for the families in the study.
