Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder From Early Childhood to Preadolescence: Clinical Assessment and Treatment

The new diagnosis of avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) has expanded the spectrum of feeding/eating disorders in DSM-5. Research highlights the importance of early diagnosis and intervention for each of the three subtypes of ARFID: apparent lack of interest in food or eating; avoidance based on sensory characteristics of food (appearance, taste, texture, smell); and concerns about aversive consequences of eating (sudden onset after choking, gagging, vomiting). Participants gain understanding of the major subtypes of AFRID, and learn the manifestations of each subtype at different ages from early childhood to adolescents, the different treatments at different ages, and that a child can have more than one subtype simultaneously.
