We're holding a summit on adults with intellectual disabilities, autism and ARFID

Do you work with people with intellectual disabilities or autism?

Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) is a new diagnosis in the DSM-5. It was previously referred to as 'selective eating disorder.' ARFID persists into adulthood for some people with autism and intellectual disabilities. There is a sensory element to ARFID and it has an impact on the person’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

This summit is for anyone working with adults (including adolescents) with queried or diagnosed ARFID.

The summit will take place on Monday 12 November 2018, from 9.30am-4pm at Duncan Macmillan House, Porchester Road, Nottingham.
