About the Author

Dr Gillian Harris has worked for over 35 years, both in research and as a clinician, almost exclusively with children with food refusal behaviours. Dr Elizabeth Shea has worked as a clinician for 20 years both with children with autism and children with food refusal behaviours.


Harris and Shea have produced a fantastic resource for parents and professionals alike. Not only does this book give great advice to help children with food refusal and avoidant eating, but also covers the evidence base about the reasons underlying these behaviours in an accessible and enlightening way. -- Prof. Jackie Blissett, Professor of Childhood Eating Behaviour, Aston University, UK
An important book full of information for professionals and parents who deal with 'fussy eaters' (many of them are on the autism spectrum). A useful read if you want to learn more about why some children (and adults) have problems related to food and the best strategies to successfully manage this. -- Olga Bogdashina, author, lecturer in Autism Studies, co-founder of the International Consortium of Autism Institutes
