Join the ASCV for a virtual workshop on Tuesday, June 30 at 4pm where we will discuss the possible etiologies, symptoms, treatment options, and developmental considerations of picky eating behavior from an interdisciplinary team perspective. Attendees will hear from a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, a Licensed Speech Pathologist, and a Licensed Behavior Analyst.
