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?”

Pediatric Feeding The Big Picture Module 1


Pediatric Feeding: The Big Picture Module 1


In this first module of our series 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.


Key Learning Outcomes:

As a result of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

  • Delineate different areas of responsibility and scope for Speech-Language Pathologists, Physical Therapists, and Occupational Therapists.
  • Discuss normal feeding development milestones and their typical timeline.
  • Identify and compare the relationship between Gross Motor Development and Oral Motor/Feeding Development.

    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.

    This was a fantastic course!! I learned a lot of new information and gained a better perspective for reasonable expectations for therapy based on motor skills. It was also very helpful to have the discussion about scope of practice for all of the therapists potentially involved in feeding therapy. Well done!

    I’m just entering my fifth year as an SLP for birth to three. This course not only helped with some key review points, but also enlightened me in some areas of development I hadn’t connected yet as effecting eating development. The bumper stickers were great!

  14. (verified owner):

    This course is AMAZING! Such great practical information that you can take the next day and work with your clients. A great deal of information that I had not thought about the connections to feeding and LOVE the Bumper Stickers! I print them out and keep them with me at work!
