I sincerely hope everyone is staying safe during this time. Since many therapists and clinicians are home bound at the moment, I promised a post dedicated to online learning opportunities. I found quite a bit of material available virtually. Except for a few classes where I know the speakers, I am NOT endorsing these sites or the courses. If you are looking for online information, I would recommend doing a little more research into the class to decide if it is right for you and your practice. There might also be opportunities to branch out and learn something new as well.
Finding the courses. I reached out to colleagues in the field and scoured the internet over the last several days and came up with a list of online learning opportunities related to pediatric feeding and pediatric feeding disorders. I tried to list them in alphabetical order. I am sure I missed some so if you have classes or webinars you would like added to the list please comment below the post so we can see them.
Online education includes a variety of parameters:
- Live/Recorded: Workshops may be live allowing for interaction with the speaker (like my class) or workshop may be recorded which allows for extended time to watch and learn and the ability to review the material at your own pace.
- CEU/No CEU’s: Workshop may offer CEU’s in your discipline, some do not but may offer a certificate that your could use toward CEU’s.
- Fee/Free: Online course may have a fee or be free. I have tried to include both free and fee based courses as I know some therapists are currently out of work and would benefit from some free CEU’s. Some sites have free and paid options so look around.
- Discipline specific: I have tried to include information for a variety of disciplines related to pediatric feeding issues.
This is not an exhaustive list but should get you started! You may need to scroll over to see all of the text. I also included a pdf of the chart at the bottom if that is easier. Good luck and happy learning.

Lindsey Rodrigue says
I’m looking for an introductory infant feeding and swallowing course that is available online due to the current circumstances with COVID-19. I reviewed the above courses and it appears CIAO has an upcoming livesteam course in May. However, I really need a continuing education course on this sooner. I find majority of the courses in feeding and swallowing are pediatric based. I haven’t been able to find a reliable infant course. Do you recommend a specific course? Thank you in advance!
