Judy McCrary has worked with children with a variety of special needs who all struggle with feeding in some shape or form. Participants will leave with an understanding of the connection between sensory processing disorder and different styles of picky eating (especially as manifested in disorders such as ASD); red flags and warning signs; the challenges it presents from a nutritional and developmental perspective; ready-to-implement interventions; and available solutions to help young children, their parents, and the professionals who serve them. Judy completed her education at UCSB and the University of WI, Madison. She is a licensed speech pathologist who has practiced for over 25 years. She has served as a lecturer at SJSU and SFSU in the graduate departments for communicative disorders.
