Family mealtime can provide a time and space for families to build relationships and enjoy time together. For children with autism and other developmental disabilities, mealtimes are also a good opportunity to practice and learn a language using food as a natural reinforcer. Use these visuals to help children understand the expectations of mealtime and request food.
