Feeding Therapy: Its Not Just About Swallowing
Dates = May 2-3, 2014
location = Baltimore, MD
description = This unique 2-day course benefits pediatric speech language pathologists and occupational therapists interested in the
bigger picture pertaining to pediatric feeding disorders and who want strategies to implement right away with their clients.  Why do
children have trouble eating?  How are physiology, motor skills and behavior linked and how do the basic principles of Applied Behavior
Analysis (ABA) strengthen that connection?  How do family dynamics and parenting styles influence progress?  Why is it that a child eats
well in the clinic setting but cannot generalize those skills to the home and school?  This course answers those questions and focuses
on setting children up for success for meeting functional objectives while utilizing the premise of ABA. Participants learn how to problem
solve common roadblocks in eating and then continue to build progress by following a hierarchy of steps to success.
