    IDDSI: What You Need to Know

    Nectar and Honey are OUT. The confusing, subjective terminology that has plagued our professions for so long is finally being replaced by a well-thought-out, universally objective framework. The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) framework is being implemented in many different countries around the world, and Dysphagia Therapists and Dietitians need to know what it’s all about.

  • In the thick of it

    In the Thick of It

    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.

    Pediatric Feeding: The Big Picture Module 1

    There is a great need for therapists competent in evaluating and treating pediatric feeding disorders. Yet few have received adequate training in this area in school. Many therapists wonder, “What happens if I get this wrong? Can I do damage as a feeding therapist? And who is supposed to treat this, anyway?”

  • Girl and Woman in Responsive Feeding Session

    Provision of Feeding Intervention in the Context of Responsive Feeding

    For clinicians working with families and young children, moving away from a directive or prescribed approach in feeding intervention towards a responsive framework can improve outcomes and instill trust between the partners involved in feeding. Consideration of the child as an autonomous individual with unique congenital and experiential challenges allows us to reframe how we set goals, provide therapy, and interact with caregivers.

  • The Milky Way: Supporting Babies at the Breast as a SLP

    The Milky Way: Supporting Babies at the Breast as a Feeding Therapist

    We know as feeding therapists, the most impactful thing a caregiver can do is to feed, nurture, and grow their children. This is a foundation for bonding and relationship building. When that relationship goes awry due to feeding issues or difficulties, it can become overwhelming, if not even traumatic. Supporting the infant from the very beginning at the breast is important for building this caregiver/baby relationship.

    Thoracic Auscultation In Dysphagia

    Thoracic Auscultation in Dysphagia

    Can a Feeding Therapist use a stethoscope? Yes, we absolutely can! A stethoscope is a very valuable tool in gathering information about swallowing and we’re not talking about listening for clicks or clunks.

    This course was presented via live webinar on Saturday, July 13th at 7:00 PM Central Time. We are currently editing the video to post it on our site. All participants will be registered for on-demand access and notified by email and FaceBook once that is done.
