Paradigm shift

I’m a parent of a 15 year old with ARFID, and the episode with Lauren Sharifi was a freaking revelation. Lauren’s perspective is the key I’ve been searching for for over a decade and this conversation was the most helpful and hopeful discussion of this ED that I have ever heard. Thank you.

Well rounded feeding podcast

This podcast is so great if you work with feeding clients or have interest in feeding/dysphagia! Bri approaches feeding in a whole child and family approach that constantly helps me think of all the factors that go into pediatric feeding issues.
