“The My Way” food selectivity approach was developed by Dr. Greg Hanley, a well-known BCBA-D who has been applying the principles of his research to improve children’s behaviors for over 30 years.
This skill-based approach provides a relaxed environment in which children are motivated to interact with and eventually eat new and nonpreferred foods.
Pediatric occupational therapy can help maximize your child’s potential for success and independence by coordinating their thinking, speaking, hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling, and eating with helpful and developmentally appropriate body movements and behaviors.
Children are given the choice to participate in the treatment and always have the option to leave or take a break. The process is partly child-led, and the children teach us the pace at which to progress expectations.
“The My Way” approach has been shown to be highly effective and Building Blocks Therapy is the only ABA therapy clinic in Ohio offering this method.
