Self Regulation and Mealtimes: An Integrative Approach to Difficult Feeding Challenges is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from Nov 13 - 14, 2020 at Lakeview School, Edison, New Jersey, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is designed for OTs, OTAs, PTs, PTAs, SLPs, Registered Dieticians, and Special Educators. Eating affects the entire lifespan and problems occur at all ages. While we often see food refusals and other maladaptive eating behaviors in autism spectrum disorders, disordered eating and food refusals occur frequently with ADHD, developmental delays, and even with typically developing children. Techniques apply to EI, school, clinic, and home settings with children from infancy to teens. Those new to feeding and even more experienced practitioners will learn from the course.

Description: Learn to view eating (a self-regulated occupation) through the lenses of psychoneuroimmunology, which involves multiple gut-brain neurohormonal feedback loops of sensory enjoyment, positive social interactions, and the microbiome. Participants will learn to find “just-right” self-regulation approaches, evaluate developmental readiness, plan sound nutritional food-chains, and use family-focused reduction of mealtime stress to improve feeding dynamics. Objectives: • Predict which sensory, movement, and communication activities will most likely enhance self-regulated behaviors for individual children. • Evaluate a child from participant’s caseload for developmental readiness using the Rainbow Kid’s Play Scale, and the Rainbow Kid’s Mealtime Scale. • Construct a food chain that begins with a child’s favorite food and introduces new, more nutritional foods in a stepwise pattern that stays within a child’s comfort level. • Support family-focused mealtimes by following the Satter Division of Responsibility in Feeding model. • Assemble a menu of therapeutic activities (games, cooking, art, music, academics) and objectives that will guide the child toward eating competence and autonomy.
