Abstract

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neuro-developmental disorder, typically charact-erised by difficulties in social interaction, communication and imagination (Wing, 1996). However, children with ASD are also likely to experience problems in processing sensory-perceptual information, including taste, smell and touch (Boucher, 2009; Nadon et al., 2011). Indeed, research has shown that children with ASD often exhibit several difficulties in feeding and mealtime behaviours including food selectivity, based on texture and taste (Johnson et al., 2008; Nadon et al., 2011), food
