Set an Eating Schedule

QUESTION: Does anyone else have this problem and any ideas? My son seems to have no control over eating foods, like he doesn’t know how to stop. He will continue to eat until everything is gone or will throw a tantrum if you take it away and he knows there is food left. I feel like he is going to explode at times for as much as he eats.

In this audio clip Hope McPheeters Director of Ella’s Hope and Birka Katic an ABA Therapist – discuss this topic, and talk about ways to set up an eating schedule for portion control in children with Autism.
