Just wanted to let everyone know that there is now a new resource page up on the main F.E.A.S.T. website on ARFID.  It contains a description, a number of links to articles and information, links to a couple of pertinent ATDT threads on the topic, along with some books suggested by forum members.

Thanks for that, sk8r31.

I just want to add that if anyone has additonal  ARFID resources that have been useful to post them here and we can include them too.
2015 12yo son restricting but no body image issues, no fat phobia; lost weight IP! Oct 2015 home, stable but no progress. Medical hosp to kick start recovery Feb 2016. Slowly and cautiously gaining weight at home and seeing signs of our real kid.

May 2017 Hovering around WR. Mood great, mostly. Building up hour by hour at school after 18 months at home. Summer 2017 Happy, first trip away in years, food variety, begin socialising. Sept 2017, back to school FT first time in 2 years. [thumb] 2018 growing so fast hard to keep pace with weight

Absolutely!  Please share any additional resources you may have on ARFID.  We are 'crowdsourcing' the info, and you all have a lot of knowledge that can be beneficial to others!
As we are able, the website will be updated with additional resources on many topics.  Today 'in the office' we are working on a resource page for sibling support.
