Local Feeding Therapists- For those of you who have been asking if I am going to do a local course, I have set a date: April 29-30, 2016, Raleigh, NC.
CAN-EAT Feeding Course (using medical, motor, and behavioral strategies in pediatric feeding intervention)
This two day course will focus on evaluation and treatment of feeding disorders using the
CAN = Comfort and Nutrition (Gut comfort and proper nutrition and growth first! As well as addressing medical issues such as dysphagia)
EAT =Establish Acceptance of easy textures, then Therapy for oral motor skill development and improving volume and variety of intake.
See brochure for more info or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there, Krisi
Is this any different than you medical, motor, and behavioral approach course?
Krisi Brackett says
It is the same basic course but The CAN-EAT approach is the evolution of the medical/motor/ behavioral approach. I update the course every year so if you took the course a few years back, it will look a little different at this point. Thank you for the question!
I have some parents who are interested in attending. Is there a special rate for non-professionals, and is it okay for parents to attend with the assumption that they have some prior knowledge based on their experience with their own child?
