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 feeding therapist? And who is supposed to treat this, anyway?”

Pediatric Feeding The Big Picture Module 1


Pediatric Feeding: The Big Picture Module 1


Previously Recorded During Feeding Fun Night on Saturday, September 8, 2018

In this first of four 2-hour modules making up Pediatric Feeding: The Big Picture Day 1, we focus on getting a good foundation to understand, evaluate, and treat pediatric feeding disorders competently. After outlining the Scope of Practice for Speech-Language Pathologists, Physical Therapists, and Occupational Therapists as pertains to feeding, we learn the timeline for normal development of feeding behaviors and how oral motor skills are related to gross motor skills. Very importantly, we learn how to assess the potential for improvement when working with these children.

    Excellent course. Jennifer is an excellent speaker who enthusiastically presented this material. I found the information to be very helpful and practical. I was able to apply information to at least two of my ECI feeding clients for appropriate planning for their care. Thank you. I am looking forward to the rest of this series.
