Selective Eating Disorder / Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
Currently, we offer two programs for families with selective eaters. Click on the links below for more information.
Parent Weekend Workshop is a two-day educational workshop for parents who want to better understand the dynamics of this eating disorder and how it affects their family. Parents leave with a "toolbox" to take home and are encouraged on how to communicate more effectively, practice even more patience and help their child become a "food scientist".

Immersive Family Program is a five-day program for parents and their child who has selective eating. Alot takes place during the week: individual sessions with a therapist for parents and children separately, a family session, educational lectures presented by Dr. Nancy Zucker, Center Director, daily group food therapy sessions, an appointment with both a medical doctor and an occupational therapist and several group sessions for parents as well as children.
