Oct 22, 2018 | USD $229.99 | Boise, Idaho
Complex Feeding Issues: Sensory, Motor & Behavior Techniques for Autism, Cerebral Palsy & Other Developmental Delays is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Oct 22, 2018 at The Riverside Hotel, Boise, Idaho, United States of America. Course Description: Do you work with special needs children who cry or scream, throw food, refuse to sit at a table and eat, or refuse to try new foods? Do you know children who eat only a limited number of foods or only eat the same food over and over? Is going to a restaurant out of the question for the families you work with? Attend this seminar to get the strategies you need to make mealtimes more peaceful and positive! You will learn much more than the sensory issues causing these feeding difficulties; we will examine behaviour issues as well as oral motor difficulties. Through the use of video case examples, I will show you treatment strategies, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises to gain the knowledge needed to successfully treat feeding difficulties in children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and more. Walk away with advanced techniques to: • Evaluate the causes of mealtime difficulties: behaviour, sensory, oral motor, or a combination • Increase range of foods, decrease food jags • Blend motor and sensory to address feeding delays in cerebral palsy • Increase jaw strength and decrease ineffective lip closure, or poor tongue lateralization • Use deep breathing and proprioceptive input to address self-regulation at the table • Develop tactile, auditory and smell to increase participation for kids w/decreased vision or cortical impairment • Educate parents and caregivers to promote carryover at home Course Objectives: • Evaluate how sensory processing, behaviour and oral motor skills impact or interfere with each child’s ability to eat. • Role play how to implement sensory techniques during and prior to meal times to address difficulties such as not wanting to touch certain foods or sitting at the table. • Implement oral motor exercises and strategies to promote feeding patterns such as rotary chewing pattern, lip closure and tongue lateralization. • Explore the misconceptions about feeding that impact special needs children. • Evaluate the behaviours that interfere with eating and devise strategies to address the behaviour. • Support and guide the parents, caregivers and other family members through often emotional or stressful meal times.
