Day one will concentrate on medical and nutritional intervention strategies, while day two will focus on evaluation and therapeutic intervention. If children are available, there will be 1-2 live evaluations. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Explain how feeding disorders develop, the basis for most problems and what maintains them over time • Explain how gastrointestinal disorders such as reflux, dysmotility and pain affect feeding in a child • Explain the differences between a modified barium swallow study and a fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of feeding and how you would choose one over the other when evaluating a child's swallowing function • Explain how to prioritize treatment strategies with a pediatric patient with a feeding disorder • Give examples of behavior techniques to use to improve acceptance of bites of food.
