Are you facing the problem of
supporting someone with eating challenges?
Is this a person who….
- Is a picky, fussy or problem eater?
- Is a compulsive over eater?
- has a selective eating disorder
- has a restricted diet as many with autism do
- is on a special diet (ie. gluten free, casein free, etc)
- is in a supported living situation
- is a person with disabilities ie. non-verbal, communication disorder
- is a person needing support to ensure healthy nutrition and a healthy diet plan
- stroke victims, persons with brain injury
Then your solution may be The Eating Game™!
No reading ability is required as pictures are matched using a simple system of color coding. And new foods can be added at any time! Included are suggestions for how to use, modify and extend the use of the book/kit to maximize its effectiveness.
While The Eating GameTM was initially developed to address the nutritional challenges faced by many children with Autism, it is also being used by many others who need support to make healthy food choices: picky eaters, those on selective or restricted diets, adults in group homes or assisted living situations who are striving to be more independent, those with communication challenges who benefit from visual supports, families wanting to develop healthy diets, schools/preschools teaching about good nutrition and those with compulsive eating disorders obsessed with eating.
Regardless of who is using The Eating GameTM, as with efforts to change any behaviors, it is imperative to be consistent and persistent in its daily use. To be most effective might require some modifications to include the use of strategies/reinforcers that are known to ensure optimum success.
The Eating Game comes with a total of 5 Planning sheets:
- Female 14 – 18 years
- Male 14 – 18 years
The Eating Game™ uses original artwork, over 200 food pictures, by artist Jenny Gilmore (Sun Rae Framing and Artwork, Truro, NS). We have added some new pictures as requested by customers. We encourage you to do this if there are pictures you would like to have.
We now have two new editions, French and Mi’kmaw. The French Edition is a complete translation of text and pictures. The Mi’kmaw Edition only has the picture words translated, with introductory text in English. When ordering please specify the edition desired.
