Early life risk factors for obesity in children with Autism Spectrum 


Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are five times more likely to have mealtime challenges and be picky eaters and they carry a more than 40% greater risk of developing obesity than typically developing children. In this webinar, the speaker will provide an overview of select early life risk factors which may be implicated in nutritional challenges and adverse weight-related outcomes in children with ASD. Specific attention will be devoted to the prenatal period and early infancy as well as to familial factors and behavioral eating phenotypes which may be implicated in the increased obesity risk in this especially vulnerable population of children.The seminar will conclude with opportunities for addressing feeding- and weight-related concerns in children with ASD and implications for future research.
