    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!
