Here is the official write-up:

The documented incidence of Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER) in infants and young children is rising and frequently leads to Feeding Issues.  These issues may include aversion, failure to progress to textured foods, and poor weight gain.  Feeding Therapists, while not able to directly address the GER are often called upon to assist in treating its effects on feeding.  This presentation will explain current practices in evaluating and treating feeding difficulties related to reflux and strategies to facilitate better oral intake and feeding development in the pediatric population.

Robynne Elkin, MOT, OTR will explain current practices in evaluating and treating feeding difficulties related to reflux and strategies to facilitate better oral intake and feeding development in the pediatric population. Robynne has over 20yrs experience working with children, is the co-inventor of the Res-Q Infant Wedge and Sling, and is a recognized expert consultant at www.infantrefluxdisease.com.

At the conclusion of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

  1. Outline the research presently available for common Reflux Protocols.
  2. List common medications currently in use to treat pediatric GER.
  3. Discuss the role of Positioning and Thickening in lessening the incidence and symptoms of GER.
