The project’s goal was to elaborate a multidisciplinary service protocol for small children with eating disorders based on the model of Early Intervention Centre in Budapest and later anywhere else in Hungary. Target groups include professionals for whom a basic course was held in three regions on the subject that is missing from the gradual curriculum of universities. Outcomes were published at conferences and relevant journals while a website is launched to provide information both for parents and professionals. Involving parent associations helps keep clients’ view in mind when planning the courses and the website and they cooperate in workshops for specific groups of clients. Based on the model arising from the teamwork of education and health professionals and parents, eating therapies become part of the basic services and the topic is to be included in the syllabus of related universities, thus supporting one of the basic needs of man even in the case of disabilities.
