Course Description:
Do you have a caseload full of children who refuse to eat because of sensory challenges, food sensitivities, behaviors, or even no apparent reason? This course addresses the growing problem of food refusals and nutritional deficiencies from a revolutionary new perspective and focuses on self-regulation, socio-cultural, and emotional perspectives while incorporating conventional nutrition, oral-motor skills, sensory processing and behavioral techniques. Susan’s highly successful, integrative approach integrates body, mind and spirit and uses play, the primary occupation of childhood, as a focal point to improve outcomes and plot a course to happier and healthier mealtimes. The seminar format involves extensive case problem solving and participants will apply the provided tools to their own clients. These tools include: structured observations of play and mealtime behaviors; food journals for nutrition, sensory, and food sensitivities; functional, measurable performance objectives aligned with academic goals; and play based mealtime implementation strategies.

The participant will be able to:
• Discuss commonalities in the development of play, emotional intelligence, and mealtime skills.
• Identify common medical conditions associated with food refusals and the research-based evidence that needs to guide mealtime interventions.
• Compare and differentiate a child's current food choices for nutritional value and sensory preference.
• Generate plans for successfully introducing new and nourishing foods to develop epigentic resilience to disease.
• Design therapeutic interventions that motivate and reward expanded food choices and the development of competent eating skills via the gut-brain connection.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
