The Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is inviting children ages 6-12 with a diagnosis of ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) and their families to participate in a Family-Based Treatment (FBT) vs. a manualized Non-Specific Care (NSC) research study. Families will be randomized to either FBT or NSC treatment, with medical management required for both treatment arms. Both treatments consist of 14 one-hour telehealth sessions over the course of 4 months. Treatment will be provided by doctoral-level, highly skilled therapists.

- Children ages 6-12
- Current diagnosis of ARFID
- Able to speak English
- Living with at least one parent (the whole family will be enrolled for treatment)
