Using medical, motor, and behavioral strategies in pediatric feeding
CAN = Comfort and Nutrition– gut comfort and proper nutrition and growth comes first. This includes medical and nutritional intervention for reflux, constipation, food intolerance, and hypersensitivity/pain issues, swallowing.
EAT =Establish Acceptance of dry spoon or easy textures, then Therapy for oral motor skill development and improving volume and variety of intake.
Course Description: Pediatric feeding and swallowing problems are complicated and often multifactorial. This two-day course will focus on how to us medical, motor and behavioral strategies to diagnose, prioritize treatment options and ensure successful outcomes for your patients.
Day 1: will concentrate on medical (GI and Respiratory) issues that interfere with feeding progression and swallowing assessment and intervention.
Day 2: will focus on nutritional management, feeding evaluation and therapeutic intervention. Therapy strategies for common feeding problems will be covered in depth with lecture, video illustration, and live demos if available. Therapy topics covered will include weaning from a g-tube, improving acceptance of volume and variety of food, reducing picky eating, and oral motor progression from sucking to chewing.
*If children are available, there will be 1-2 live demonstrations.
