    Feeding Therapists are constantly faced with the task of encouraging clients to eat more and eat a more varied diet.  Yet we rarely have even a basic understanding of the nutritional make-up of the foods our clients eat.

    The way food feels in our mouth is a large part of why we do or do not like a food, so for those with sensory issues this can add extra challenges to finding nutritional balance. Foods with the same textures generally have very similar nutritional composition and for someone who only likes specific textures this limits the variety of nutrients in their diet.

    Written and taught from the perspective of a Dietitian whose own children had sensory-based feeding issues, this course will discuss how to work toward nutritional balance while gradually expanding the repertoire of foods an individual is willing to consume.

    In the Thick of It

    This course will be free until we get our ASHA CEU Providership!!!

     

    So WHAT is going on with Thickeners these days? Do we use Simply Thick in peds or not? What’s up with Rice Cereal and cancer?  Are gel-based thickeners okay for our geriatric population?  Get some answers to these questions and more as we explore the history and use of different options for thickening in dysphagia across the lifespan.  We’ll look at the pros and cons of various thickeners and their possible ramifications on respiratory and gastrointestinal systems.  I’ll present information from recent discussions with the FDA regarding use of Simply Thick and rice and teach some alternatives to thickening such as various feeding positions and use of different nipples, cups, and feeding utensils and when these should be considered.

    Tools for Treating Feeding in the Medically-Challenging Child

    Do you have patients that just aren’t in your textbooks? Can’t find a pre-packaged program for your caseload? Anatomy is the foundation for all we do and the more complicated the patient, the more we need to get back to the basics.

    Also known as “The Wighead Course”, this fun, highly interactive workshop for SLP/SLPAs , OT/COTAs and PT/PTAs will finally teach you Anatomy in a way you can understand, remember and really use in assessment and treatment-planning. You’ll learn exactly how and why craniofacial anomalies affect feeding and breathing and when you can and cannot help. You’ll understand why g-tube dependence causes sensory changes and what to do about it. You’ll even learn how to use a stethoscope for thoracic auscultation to aid in detection of aspiration outside of the radiology suite. Then we’ll evaluate some of the emerging therapy techniques and explore the relevant controversies in light of our solid understanding of anatomy and physiology.

    Come gain the skills to assess and formulate specific treatment techniques unique to each patient based on their individual anatomy and physiology and leave encouraged and motivated to go back to your medically-challenging patients with real tools to help!
