Practical Strategies for Treating Complex Feeding Disorders: Treating the Whole Child

Course Description

Clinicians will be taught the necessary components of a comprehensive evaluation of feeding problems including those encountered by children with oral motor dysfunction, oral motor inexperience, oral hypersensitivity, behavioral rigidity and anxiety as seen in children with cardiac issues, prematurity, ASD, syndromes, SPD. Focus will be on a holistic treatment approach for challenging feeding disorders that are characteristically seen with tube dependency, oral inexperience, severe oral hypersensitivity, rigid eating patterns, and difficulty transitioning to table foods.
Participants will leave with a comprehensive therapy tool box including suggestions for reducing mealtime stress and anxiety and ensuring family carryover. Video case analysis will enhance problem-solving in hospital, school, home and private practice settings.

Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to:
• Identify children who are appropriate for oral functional therapy.
• Perform a holistic evaluation for complex feeding problems.
• Identify the barriers to normal eating patterns and reasonable treatment goals.
• Develop a holistic treatment approach, including determining treatment priorities and the appropriate intensity of therapy (including issues of timing as to when to use resources differently).

This course is presented by Mary Tarbell Bickley via Education Resources Inc.

This course is sponsored by CPNJ and is closed to the public.

Interested CPNJ Staff should contact Lindsay Grasso at LGrasso@cpnj.org or (973)763-9900 ext. 1802
