Pediatric Feeding The Big Picture Module 6


Pediatric Feeding: The Big Picture Module 6 – Behavioral


We continue our introduction to pediatric feeding disorders with an examination of the Behavioral component of a child’s eating skills. Is ABA ever appropriate in Feeding Therapy? Do children actually start eating using a Responsive Approach? We will discuss how some therapists utilize the principles of operant and classical conditioning, while others prefer to abide by the Division of Responsibility and respect the child’s right to say, “No”. We will also explore what can happen when any of these principles are misapplied.

Finally, we will apply the key principles and components learned throughout the series by discussing some pertinent case studies and practicing treatment plan formulation.
