A Crash Course in Pediatric Feeding
Do you need help learning how to do a pediatric feeding evaluation? Want to know where to start when planning therapy? Also known as “OMG I’ve Got a Feeding Kid??”, this 6-hour presentation helps orient therapists to the basic procedures of evaluating and treating feeding in pediatric patients.
We walk through the steps of performing a Feeding Assessment including History Taking, Oral Mechanism Evaluation, Feeding Skills, Writing a Diagnostic Statement, and making appropriate Recommendations. Then we nail down foundational concepts and techniques for treating Sensory-based, Motor-based, Structurally-based, Experientially-based, and Oral vs. Pharyngeal feeding difficulties. With hands-on practice and case study analysis, you’ll be able to apply this new knowledge immediately and even come away with a list of recommended items and resources for a Basic Feeding Kit.
