Why would a BCBA treat PFD?! Isn’t that an SLP’s job? If you're interested in PFD and believe in treating the entire patient through the evidence-based triad, you will thoroughly enjoy this conversation that shows us that PFD really is a team sport!
In this episode of SYP, I have a conversation with Melissa L. Gonzalez, Ph.D., BCBA-D, a clinical psychologist and a doctoral-level board-certified behavior analyst about all things pediatric feeding disorders! Melissa specializes in ASD and PFD and brings the passion to prove it to this episode. She shares golden nuggets of knowledge all about partnering together with clinicians, family members, and patients to provide the very best care to our tiniest of patients.
