Course Description:
This course teaches a step-by-step approach for helping children learn to explore food, enjoy eating, and participate independently in social mealtimes. The AEIOU approach acceptance, exposure, independence, observation and understanding offers a new and highly successful method for integrated treatment of infants and young children with challenging feeding disorders using sensory, oral motor, biomedical and environmental strategies. Five factors in this holistic approach emphasize active participation, independence and shared control.

This course will arm participants with knowledge and practical information to achieve functional outcomes for complex etiologies, improve quality of mealtime, manage tube dependency and transition to eating solid foods, treat sensory aversions, improve oral-motor skills, achieve home carryover, and more. This course is presented in a dynamic learning environment, using case studies and videos to engage and instruct participants. Extensive resources are provided. Many special populations are discussed including: prematurity, GERD, allergies, autism, failure to thrive, tracheostomy, picky eaters, and children with various syndromes.

Course Objectives:
Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to:
• Develop assessment and treatment strategies that integrate 5 management factors for biomedical and enviro-behavioral influences that limit successful feeding in infants and young children.
• Formulate strategies to achieve parent buy-in for home carryover, promote positive parent-child interaction, and help children participate independently in social mealtime routines.
• Identify contraindications for oral feeding and describe a 5-step treatment plan for advancing prefeeding skills in non-oral feeders.
• Assess signs of distress and/or disengagement during feeding.
• Develop and implement treatment plans for oral feeding that expand taste repertoire and texture acceptance by incorporating strategies for the mealtime environment, seating/positioning, and oralmotor, sensory, and motor deficits.

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
