Interventions for Bulimia

Accommodations
  1. Allow the student to complete academics in settings where food is not present

    Example:
    If the setting is problematic (food odors or visibility of other students eating), allow work in a non-food setting (library).

Behavioral Planning

  • Minimize opportunities for bulimic behaviors by having the student go to the bathroom before he/she eats, and remain in class after eating for sufficient time to digest food

    Example:
    Have the student go to the bathroom before eating and remain in class for one hour after eating or snack-time.
