- Given sensory strategies (i.e., steps for eating, visual supports, etc.), Lanita will tolerate kissing non-preferred foods in 3 /4 trials across 3 consecutive therapy sessions with decreasing prompts as measured by observation and data collection in order to expand her diet to include meat and vegetables. 3
- Within a 6 months, Dianna will improve food variety by working through the sensory hierarchy (i.e. tolerate in room, smell, taste, chew, swallow, etc.) for nonpreferred items 8 or more times during a treatment session or during mealtimes at home with minimal cueing to support desensitization and increase nutritional variety over 6 consecutive sessions. 0
- Within 6 months, Gabby will increase intake of a variety of nonpreferred proteins, fruits, and vegetables by consuming 5 /6 bites of nonpreferred proteins, fruits, and vegetables with moderate cueing in a therapy session with no aversions (i.e. gagging, etc.) across 4 consecutive sessions in order to increase the nutritional variety of diet. 0
- Jospeh will increase overall awareness in the oral cavity through vibration, so as to increase willingness to accept feeding and swallowing experiences 3 times a session over consecutive sessions as measured by clinician data and observation. 2

These feeding disorders are characterized by food refusal, anxiety when presented with novel foods, failure to advance to textured foods, and inappropriate mealtime behaviors. The Positive Eating Program (PEP) was developed to remediate feeding disorders by providing rich experiences in food vocabulary, positive sensory nonfood and food activities, and structured and predictable through trials
