Feeding Therapy: It’s Not Just About Swallowing Course is organized by Motivations Inc. and will be held from Oct 11 - 12, 2019 at Heartspring, Wichita, Kansas, United States of America. Target Audience: A Workshop for Speech and Occupational Therapists and Assistants and Dietitians. CEU Credits: This is a 16-hour course equivalent to 1.6 CEUs. Course Summary: This unique 2-day course benefits pediatric therapists interested in the bigger picture pertaining to pediatric feeding disorders. Therapists 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? What role could tethered oral tissues play in feeding function? 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, provides practical strategies to implement with a variety of clients, 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. This course emphasizes the importance of keeping the fun in feeding while developing consistent positive behaviors at mealtimes so that everyone in the family can enjoy their time together around the family table! (Intermediate Level) Complimentary copy of the instructor’s award-winning book included: Adventures in Veggieland: Help Your Kids Learn to Love Vegetables with 100 Easy Activities and Recipes Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Discuss how protective behaviors develop when GI discomfort, sensory processing challenges, delayed gross and/or fine motor skills impact a child’s willingness to eat. • Apply the basic principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to the treatment of pediatric feeding clients. • List 5 strategies for improving tongue mobility and developing mature swallowing patterns in children. • Understand and discuss the impact of tethered oral tissues, specifically upper lip tie and four types of tongue ties, on a child’s ability to develop age appropriate feeding skills. • Describe how to teach the following skills to toddlers and older: biting, chewing, independent swallowing, straw & open cup drinking • Implement a hierarchical method of problem solving to meet functional outcomes. • Understand how to problem solve new challenges with future clients by systematically breaking the task into smaller steps and teaching one step at a time.
